SALT LAKE CITY — Extremely hot and dry weather conditions along with gusty winds have triggered red flag fire warnings as well as high wind warnings in Utah and Nevada.

The warnings are for a big part of western and southern Utah but also apply to some Wasatch Front Counties including Salt Lake.

Extreme caution is encouraged to avoid starting any fires because they could quickly get out of hand.
