FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - Fire danger levels for many counties in the Red River Valley are now at their lowest in weeks.

Counties along the Red River including Richland, Cass, Traill and Grand Forks are now in the ‘low’ fire danger category.

Other counties in the region are in the ‘moderate’ category, including Ramsey, Barnes and Pembina to name a few.

As you head west, the fire danger grows. Counties bordering Montana are in the ‘extreme’ to ‘very high’ categories for fire danger.
