Fire Bans

Just a reminder, there are fire restrictions throughout the west. In most areas fires are only allowed in established sites, like campgrounds, in permanently constructed fire pits. This means no charcoal or camp fires even in a fire pan . Don't plan on Dutch oven meals. Propane camp stoves are OK. No fireworks or tiki torches. If you smoke, anything, you need be in an area with no plants, weeds, leaves, etc, around you. The last I heard, the BLM still wants you to take a fire pan on any overnight on Ruby/HT. Check with the various agency for details.

After one of the wettest winters in recent memory in NW MT, I saw this post and panicked.

No restrictions up here, but great reminder to confirm with the local agency.

Only on Forest Service land. I;m pretty sure it is not county wide yet.

BLM land is now included in the fire ban. County wide ban is probably next.



Quote:
Effective today, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Royal Gorge Field Office, begins Stage 1 fire restrictions on all BLM-managed lands in Park, Teller, El Paso, and Chaffee Counties, in central Colorado. This decision is based on current fire danger and predicted weather conditions for the area.

There were no bans on our float last weekend through Dinosaur. So far, most of the fire bans are I-70 and south.
