By WKTV News

HERKIMER, N.Y. (WKTV) - Friday's dry, breezy weather was ideal for grass fires and several were reported in the Herkimer area, including one that caused smoke to blow across the New York State Thruway.

While there was not a "red flag warning" on Friday, there have been several this year because of the mild winter we had.

A "red flag warning" basically tells local fire departments to be on alert because conditions are ideal for grass fires.
