  • Fire Restrictions and Bans

    Due to the county's geographic makeup, wildfire is always a concern, and it is a more potent threat during droughts or dry spells. Rainfall and cooler temperatures may reduce the danger of wildfire; however, people are encouraged to be vigilant as the danger of fire is always present in the high country. Citizens should use caution when starting and extinguishing campfires, disposing of lighted cigarettes, and other activities that involve the use of fire or sparks.

    For information regarding remote slash collection, burn permits and reporting fireworks call the fire information hotline: 303-271-8200.
    To be alerted to changes in the fire restrictions and bans subscribe to the email fire restrictions and bans alert list.

    Fire restrictions and bans can also be enacted by the U.S. Forest ServiceDenver Mountain Parks, and JeffCo Open Space. Please check with each individual entity for their restriction and ban information.
