Fraser, Granby announce fire restrictions, following Grand County announcement

The towns of Fraser and Granby announced fire restrictions Friday afternoon following the announcement from Grand County on Friday, July 15.

Fraser automatically enacts a fire ban or restriction when the county announces it, according to Jeff Durbin, Fraser Town Manager. The rule was written into the town code several years ago, he said.

In Granby, the mayor declared a fire restriction late this afternoon, following the same rules as the county enacted.

The following fire restriction are applicable to the Town of Fraser, the Town of Granby and unincorporated Grand County:

No open fires and no use or sale of fireworks.

The Town of Kremmling said they are not enacting the fire restricion.

The Town of Grand Lake will meet with their board on July 25 to make a decision about fire restrictions.

Officials from the Town of Hot Sulphur Springs did not return phone calls on Friday.

Residents of Fraser, Granby and unincorporated Grand County may still use gas fueled appliances, wood pellet grills and stoves, charcoal barbeque grills at private residences or developed parks, campgrounds and picnic areas, portable outdoor fireplaces, Tiki torches, welding and cutting torch appliances, and fires to inflate commercial hot air balloons.
