County-wide fire restrictions are now in effect restricting all open burns, including the use of all fireworks, cutting, grinding and welding. Cigarette smoking is also restricted, unless smoking takes place in an area clear of vegetation. Exceptions will be made for campfires burning in an improved fire pit, which includes any enclosure built in the ground. Fires are also allowed in pits purchased from hardware stores. Strictly prohibited are campfires in manmade rock rings. Please see the County alert.
If you see anyone violating these restrictions, please–for the sake of our beautiful canyon’s safety–speak up! Report it to the Summit County Sheriffs Office (435-615-3600) if the person(s) don’t comply immediately!
