A post by Sioux City Fire Rescue on Wednesday said, "Red Flag Warning today for western IA. Extreme fire danger conditions are expected. Peak wind gusts of 35 to 50 mph are possible. Any fires that develop will spread rapidly."
On Sunday afternoon, an uncertain number of acres of farmland were scorched in a rapidly-spreading field fire west of Anthon.
