FIRE RESTRICTIONS

**Fireworks are not allowed on any Public Lands**

No Fire Restrictions are currently in place. Please note that the Fire Danger has increased from Moderate potential to High Potential. 

HIGH Potential Description: HIGH Fires start easily and spread at a fast rate. All fine dead fuels ignite readily and fires start easily from most causes. Unattended campfires are likely to escape. Fires spread rapidly and short-distance spotting is common. High-intensity burning may develop on slopes, or in concentrations of fine fuel. Fire may become serious and difficult to control unless they are hit hard and fast while small.
