New Restrictions On Fire In Parts Of Front Range, Western Slope As Temperatures Rise

Officials this week imposed new fire restrictions in parts of Colorado’s Front Range and West Slope amid growing concern about the potential for wildfires as temperatures rise.

Boulder County on Wednesday implemented Stage 1 fire restrictions for unincorporated areas in the western part of the county, as did Clear Creek County. Officials in western Colorado also took preventive measures this week to try to reduce the risk of fires, with Stage 1 restrictions in place in Ore., San Miguel and Montrose counties.

The Bureau of Land Management’s Gunnison and Uncompagre field offices also implemented Stage 1 restrictions.

Stage 1 fire restrictions generally prohibit the lighting of fireworks, any fire, smoking within a confined space, and the shooting of firearms unless hunting at a specified range or with a valid license.

Peter Goble, a climatologist and drought specialist at the Colorado Climate Center, said the frequency and severity of wildfires seen in recent years was not always a norm in Colorado.
