ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - The Anchorage Fire Department is warning of dangerous fire conditions.

The department says dry conditions exist and warm, dry weather is forecast in south-central Alaska for the next three days.

Dry, gusty winds forecast for Tuesday night and could make the threat worse.

All burning is suspended in the municipality.

The department says people should use extreme caution with fire until conditions moderate.

The department is also warming private pilots and drone operators to stay at least five miles away from all wildfires.
