Fire restrictions expanded statewide

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

Wildland fire managers have announced that fire restrictions currently in effect in Washington County and areas west of Interstate 15 have been expanded as of July 4. The restrictions apply to all federal, state, and private lands and remain in effect until rescinded.

The following acts are prohibited on the above mentioned lands:

1. Setting, building, maintaining, attending, or using open fire of any kind, except campfires within approved fire pits and grills provided for, in improved campgrounds, picnic areas, and permanently improved places of habitation, or except as otherwise authorized. Devices fueled by petroleum or liquid propane gas products are allowed in all locations.

2. Smoking, except within an enclosed vehicle, camp trailer, or building, a developed recreation site, or while stopped in an area at least three feet in diameter that is barren or cleared of mineral soil.

3. Discharging, or using any kind of fireworks, tracer ammunition, or other incendiary devices in any location on federal, state, and unincorporated private lands. (Note, these acts are always prohibited on federal lands.)

All other fire restrictions, or necessary exemptions to the restrictions, will be handled through local permits issued by the responsible agency for that purpose. This order does not affect incorporated towns and cities, or the high Uintas Wilderness Area.
