ELLSWORTH, Maine — All of coastal Maine and a large swath of the state's interior are under a red flag warning on Thursday due to weather conditions that have already contributed to several wildfires, including a tough-to-reach fire in the western mountains.

The National Weather Service, in collaboration with the Maine Forest Service, has issued the red flag warning until 7 or 8 p.m., depending on the location, for most of the southern half of the state. A warning has also been issued for parts of New Hampshire and Massachusetts.
