Additional Fire restrictions begin Friday, June 15 due to High Fire Danger
Stage 1 fire restrictions begin at 12:01 a.m. Friday, June 15 for the entire White River National Forest and Bureau of Land Management-administered lands in Summit, Eagle, and Pitkin Counties, and portions of Grand County adjacent to the Colorado River and Trough Road southwest of Kremmling and the Dice Hill area south of Kremmling. Stage 1 fire restrictions are already in effect in all lands in Mesa and Garfield counties and on unincorporated and private lands in Summit, Eagle, and Pitkin counties.
Fire managers base decisions about fire restrictions on specific moisture measurements in vegetation and other risk factors such as predicted weather and amount of current fire activity.
The BLM, White River National Forest, and Summit, Eagle and Pitkin County Sheriff’s Offices will be enforcing the following temporary restrictions:
Fireworks are always prohibited on BLM, National Forest and National Park Service lands.
Fire restrictions on these lands will be in place until further notice. Those found responsible for starting wildfires will also face restitution costs of suppressing the fire.
