No fire ban for GC yet

Amid the several wild fires currently burning throughout Colorado, the Grand County Sheriff’s department addressed the county’s particular situation at the BOCC meeting on July 12. As of now, there is no fire ban for Grand County, but the issue will be addressed and monitored weekly at BOCC meetings. The recent Jim Creek fire in Winter Park was contained on July 11, but fire crews found several fires in the area that were smoldering, still hot, or currently burning. Grand County Sherriff Brett Schroetlin pointed out that with the vast size of the county the fire conditions change throughout each town, but as a whole, Grand County is not in the need of fire restrictions as of now.
