Commissioners apply Stage 1 fire restrictions

The Park County Commission on Tuesday implemented Stage I fire restrictions effective immediately.

The restrictions were implemented because of past and future adverse weather forecasts, including high temperatures, high winds, low humidity and lightning. Also, multiple fires in the area may lead to limited resources to respond, according to a Park County news release.

Under Stage I fire restrictions, the following activities are prohibited:

• Building, maintaining or using a fire or campfire.
