With warm and dry weather in the forecast, forest officials are urging Vermonters to help prevent brush and forest fires.

Grass, leaves and brush can be a fire hazard in early spring before things turn green.

Officials are already investigating a forest fire that spread through the Green Mountain National Forest in Mount Tabor on Tuesday.

Officials say their initial investigation indicates the fire was brought under control, and may have been intentionally set.

U.S. Forest Service law enforcement personnel are hoping to identify several people who were seen near the Mount Tabor Work Center on Wednesday afternoon.
