New Hampshire residents just getting used to spring now have to deal with brush fire season. Plaistow Fire Chief John McArdle says two factors help set up prime brush fire conditions: warm air and no wind. He tells the Eagle Tribune there’s more rain on the way, but it if stays dry and in the 60s at the end of the week, conditions are right for brush fires. He said the threat will continue until vegetation comes to life through May.  Capt. John Dodge, regional forest ranger for the state Division of Forests and Lands, says spring fire season usually comes as a surprise to most people, especially after a long, dreary winter.
