State Forester Issues Fire Restriction Order in Summit County
Coalville, UT (July 3, 2018) – The State Forester has issued a Fire Restriction Order in Summit County, restricting all open burns, including the use of all fireworks, cutting, grinding and welding. Cigarette smoking is also restricted, unless smoking takes place in an area clear of vegetation. Exceptions will be made for campfires burning in an improved fire pit, which includes any enclosure built in the ground. Fires are also allowed in pits purchased from hardware stores. Strictly prohibited are campfires in manmade rock rings. Firework shows with issued permits, such as those sponsored by cities and towns, will still be allowed.
The Fire Restriction Order, which went into effect Tuesday morning, will remain in place until further notice. The Order was issued after a new fire outlook report issued Monday indicated worsened conditions, resulting in increased fire risk, as well as current fire activity and resources committed.
