Fire Ban on Ruby-Horsethief - 2016

Hi everyone! Just wanted to let you all know there is a new stipulation being added to the Ruby-Horsethief permits as of July 1. No wood fires will be allowed in the river corridor as of July 1, 2016, we will let you know when the stipulation gets removed. Things are getting dry out there! Please remember with the holiday weekend coming up, fireworks are always illegal on federal lands. Thanks everyone! Have fun and stay safe out there!

Thanks for the notification. We have three local fires burning in the middle of a massive heat wave so I have sympathy for such decisions. Keep it safe out there.

We have put a post up on our Facebook page with this information. Thanks for posting here. You will probably want to make a note to "bump" this post a couple of times as the 1st approaches.

Thanks again for all that you do!

Charcoal is ok as long as it stays in a fire pan and the remains are packed out. Our rangers made the call to allow charcoal this year. We will see how it goes, as long as it is used responsibly we will continue to allow it.

Hi Buzz!!! Just got word, everything is so dry in Ruby Horsethief, no fires of any kind, including charcoal are allowed beginning July 1. camp stoves are still allowed, you must be able to turn the flame on and off. Thank you all for your understanding. Have fun and be safe!!

Are there any chances of the ban being lifted with all the rain coming through?

Unfortunately the rains that the valley has gotten have not been significant enough to lift the fire restriction. Most of the fuels in the canyon are hour fuels and dry out in about an hour of sun. Looking at the forecast, the canyon will continue to be dry and the fire danger high.
