SALT LAKE CITY — Fire restrictions in place on the national forests in Utah were lifted Friday.
Fire restrictions on all other federal, state and unincorporated lands in Utah remain in effect.
Fire restrictions are no longer in effect on the following national forests in Utah: Uinta-Wasatch-Cache, Ashley, Fishlake, Dixie, Manti-Lasal. Fire restrictions on adjacent public and private unincorporated lands are still in effect unless otherwise posted.
“We appreciate everyone’s assistance in being careful with fires during the recent period of high fire danger. Although fire restrictions are no longer in effect on the national forests in Utah, we ask everyone to remain cautious and properly extinguish their fires”, said Sue Stewart, director of fire and aviation for the Forest Service Intermountain Region. “Campfires have to be cold enough to touch before they are left.”
The fire restrictions have been in effect on all public lands in the state of Utah since June 14 due to extreme fire danger. In past weeks, higher-elevation national forests have experienced rain and higher relative humidity, reducing the flammability of wildland vegetation.
