(Salt Lake City-AP) -- It's too windy for a prescribed burn to go off today in Monte Cristo.
U-S Forest officials planned to burn about 26-hundred acres of mountain brush about 13-miles west of Woodruff in the Wasatch-Cache National Forest.
But officials say the National Weather Service has issued a red flag warning. That means there's erratic winds and low humidity, which can mean hazardous fire conditions.
Wednesday there will be a fire weather watch, which is not quite a warning but it's enough to postpone the burn another day.
U-S forest officials might try again later this week.
