Stage 1 Remain, Effective July 16
Due to the recent rains, higher humidity and improved fire conditions, Stage II fire restrictions have been rescinded for all trust lands throughout the Southern Ute Indian Reservation.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. Stage I fire restrictions remain in place which prohibit open and agricultural burning.
Southern Ute Agency Fire Management personnel have responded to 27 fires within and bordering the reservation so far this fire season with the largest being the eight-acre Montezuma Creek Fire.
If you have any further questions, please contact Southern Ute Agency Fire Management at 970-563-4571.
The Stage II Fire Restrictions will be rescinded at 6 a.m., July 16, 2018.
