    After officials warned that the risk of fire was high this weekend, firefighters on Sunday battled five brush fires that burned through more than 100 acres of forest across New Hampshire.

    Capt. John Dodge, of the State Forest Protection Bureau, said the fire danger was actually higher for Saturday. The National Weather Service issued a red flag warning due to high winds, low humidity and fuel conditions.

    Despite winds being calmer on Sunday, wildfires tore through 46 acres in Stoddard and 44 acres in Brookfield. Fire crews also responded to brush fires in Hebron, Goshen and Salem.

    Fire officials say each of the fires has been contained and no injuries were reported. Firefighters will remain on-location to monitor each blaze.
