News Release

Larimer County fire restrictions lifted today

Department: Board of County Commissioners
Release Date: Aug 8, 2017

Contact Information:

Board of Larimer County Commissioners, [970-] 498-7010, bocc@larimer.org, Justin Whitesell, Emergency Operations Director, Larimer County Sheriff’s Office, [970] 498-5310, whitesjl@co.larimer.co.us

The Board of Larimer County Commissioners today lifted the current restrictions on open fires and fireworks in the unincorporated areas of Larimer County, effective at noon today.

 
The restrictions had been set to expire on August 22, 2017. The restrictions were originally enacted due to the recent hot, dry conditions, danger of wildfire, forest and grass fires in Larimer County.
 
With recent moisture, Larimer County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Operations Manager Justin Whitesell, made the recommendation to remove the restrictions early. Other agencies such as the U.S. Forest Service have also lifted their restrictions.
 
Larimer County citizens are still advised to be careful with combustible materials at all times.
