Fort Collins, Colo. – Stage I Fire Restrictions and related restrictions on discharging firearms were lifted this morning on the on the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests and Pawnee National Grassland (ARP).  

Recent moisture has changed fire conditions enough to lift the restrictions on the ARP. Visitors are reminded that conditions can change quickly so it is important to continue to be careful with every fire, and make sure campfires are completely out.  Visitors are also encouraged to check the status of local county fire restrictions that may still be in place and affect campfires, shooting and other activities on the National Forests System lands.

Recreational shooters are reminded that local closures and target restrictions are still in place. For more information about recreational shooting on the ARP visit: www.fs.usda.gov/goto/arp/targetshooting .
