CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire Army National Guard is sending a helicopter to help fight a brush fire on Bayle Mountain in Ossipee.

The four-person Black Hawk crew will use a bucket to dump water on the affected areas until nightfall. They’ll be ready to go back out Thursday if needed.

The National Weather Service says there’s still a high fire danger in parts of New Hampshire and Maine as dry air remains in place. The red flag warning was in place through 8 p.m. Wednesday in parts of both states.

The weather service says anyone considering outside burning should monitor conditions and check with local and state officials.

Brush fires have been occurring throughout the week. Some of the larger ones have been in Concord and Ossipee, New Hampshire.
