Southern Ute’s rescinds Stage I fire restrictions

Due to the recent moisture and improved fire conditions, Stage I fire restrictions have been rescinded for all trust lands throughout the Southern Ute Indian Reservation. Although the threat of fast moving wildland fire has diminished, people are still asked to be cautious and use common sense when encountering or using fire.

Lightning is forecast to continue throughout the area and residents are encouraged to follow appropriate lightning safety protocol.

Southern Ute Agency Fire Management personnel have responded to several fires within and bordering the reservation.  The largest being the 412 acre Lightner Creek fire.

If you have any further questions, please contact Southern Ute Agency Fire Management at 970-563-4571.
