Despite cooler weather, fire still possible in Yankton County

YANKTON, S.D.(WNAX)- The dry, fairly mild weather is a treat for travelers, but fire danger lurks in the country.

Yankton Assistant Fire Chief Larry Nickels says even after harvest, there is plenty of fire fuel out there.

Nickels says with windy conditions, any fire can get away in a hurry.

Nickels says there will probably be more people outside this weekend.

Earlier in the week there were high fire danger alerts and red flag warnings. The mild dry, windy weather is expected to continue through next week.
