Fire restrictions became effective Tuesday and will continue until further notice because of hot, dry conditions and extreme fire danger in the Dixie National Forest.
Forest supervisor Hugh Thompson said people are prohibited from starting campfires and charcoal fires and from smoking outside a vehicle in places other than developed recreation sites. Fireworks are prohibited throughout the entire forest.Cooking stoves that burn gas or kerosene are permitted. Visitors are urged to keep campfires small and in developed sites and to ensure that fires are completely out before they leave an area.
