MADISON, Wis. (AP) - State officials say there is an extremely good chance of wildfires in central Wisconsin.

The National Weather Service and the Department of Natural Resources has issued a Red Flag Warning for Saturday for Wood, Adams, Juneau, Monroe and Jackson counties through 7 p.m.

Officials say warm temperatures, low humidity and high winds are anticipated and can cause fires.

The DNR is prohibiting all burning and is asking the public to be especially careful with activities that could lead to a fire.

The DNR says similar conditions are throughout much the state and many areas have a very high threat of wildfires.

The weather forecast has some precipitation expected Saturday night and officials hopes it improves the fire threat.
