That warning issued earlier this week comes after back to back years of the worst wildfires in state history, which burned thousands of acres and destroyed homes, cattle, fences and powerlines. “We’re setting up for about the same thing again this spring,” Comanche County Fire Chief Greg Ellis said“Everybody’s nervous.” The central and southern Plains, including western and southern Kansas, all of Oklahoma and most of Texas, faces an elevated threat of wildfires through April, according to Kansas State University scientists and a government organization that assesses risks. jQuery(document).ready(function () { mi.renderNewsletterIframe.init({ container: '#newsletter-signUpWidget', url: 'http://x.email.kansas.com/ats/url.aspx?cr=663&wu=106,http://x.email.kansas.com/ats/url.aspx?cr=663&wu=109,http://x.email.kansas.com/ats/url.aspx?cr=663&wu=113' }); }); Never miss a local story.

Abnormally dry weather west of Wichita over the past three months, along with dry air masses, sunshine and breezy conditions are rapidly depleting any remaining moisture and drying out grass and brush, he said. Mid to long-range forecasts call for more dry weather. “We are setting the stage for some large fires in Kansas,” Redmond said in a prepared statement issued with a report from the National Interagency Coordination Center. Fire season has already started in some parts of the state, officials in southwest Kansas say. “We’re already having some dangerous fires,” said Troy Wolf, Southwest Trustee for the Kansas Fire Fighters Association, who lives in Johnson near the Colorado border“It’s going to look pretty rough” this year.
