Southern Ute rescinds fire restrictions

Due to the recent rains, higher dew points and improved fire conditions, Stage I Fire Restrictions have been rescinded for all trust lands throughout the Southern Ute Indian Reservation.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 wildland fire has diminished, people are still asked to be cautious and use common sense when using fire.

Southern Ute Agency Fire personnel are still responding to lightning caused fires within and bordering the reservation and the fire season is expected to continue through the summer and early fall months.

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


Stage I Fire Restrictions officially rescinded at 6 a.m., July 23, 2018.
