Fire ban reduced in areas

Grand County, CO Colorado

Winter Park and the Kremmling and White River BLM offices have lowered the fire ban to stage one, making it legal to have fires inside permanent fire pits, metal grates, or charcoal grills at established campgrounds or picnic areas.

Recent rains and higher amounts of humidity have lowered the fire danger in the area, prompting the fire ban to be lowered to stage one in most of Grand County.

The lands managed by the BLM’s Little Snake Field Office have seen less consistent moisture and will remain at a stage two fire ban.

“While the fire danger is becoming less severe in some areas, it is still present and people need to continue to abide by the restrictions and be very careful with fire where it is permitted,” said Colt Mortenson, fire management officer for the Northwest Colorado Fire Management Unit.
