Fire Information

Color Country Interagency Fire Managers are implementing fire restrictions beginning June 2 at 12:01 a.m. on the Arizona Strip and all unincorporated county, state and federally administered public lands in the following Utah counties: Washington, Kane, Garfield, and Iron.


While fire restrictions are in effect, the following acts are prohibited:

•     No campfires or open fires outside of agency improved and maintained campgrounds and homesites in southwest Utah. Running water is required on cabins or homesites on unincorporated private land. Devices fueled by liquid petroleum are allowed
•     No discharging of fireworks or other pyrotechnic devices outside of incorporated city limits (city-specific restrictions may apply).
•     No shooting of exploding targets or tracer ammunition.
•     No cutting, grinding, or welding of metal in areas of dry vegetation. This includes acetylene torches.
•     No use of equipment without a working and properly maintained spark arrestor (if required).
•     No smoking near vegetation or outside of a developed recreation site, personal vehicle, or building.
•     No open fires of any kind are allowed in Zion National Park.
•     Campfires are allowed in agency improved and maintained campgrounds at Lava Point.
•     Campfires are allowed at Glen Canyon in established campgrounds within established rings and below the high-water mark, only in areas completely void of vegetation.

Please be aware that fire restrictions will be slightly different among agencies and these restrictions do not apply to incorporated cities. Please check the specific fire restrictions with the respective land management agency before visiting.

Local, state, and federal fire officials urge Utahns to use their ‘Fire Sense’ to help prevent unwanted wildfires. ‘Fire Sense’ is an interagency fire awareness campaign that was implemented last year to increase public knowledge on how to prevent wildland fires. For more information on preventing unwanted human caused wildfires, agency-specific restrictions, and reference maps, visit, and or follow us on Twitter,@UtahWildfire.


When fires happen on the Dixie National Forest, the Public Affairs Officer or Incident Public Information Officer will typically try to notify the public via the Dixie National Forest Facebook and Dixie National Forest Twitter accounts. Additionally, Utah Fire Info Twitter and Facebook may share information about new and ongoing fires on the Dixie National Forest.  As the incident evolves, it may be listed on either Inciweb and UtahFireInfo.  

Utah Fire Info is a one stop shop for fires in Utah and has current fire information, fire restrictions and how to report a fire.  This page is a joint effort by county, state, and federal land management agencies to provide timely, updated fire information in one location. 

Inciweb is great tool for researching large current incidents. Incidents on InciWeb are typically wildland fires, but the site will also host incidents when responding to natural disaster cleanup, search and rescue/recovery efforts, hurricane/tornado recovery or assisting other countries with manmade or natural disasters.  This site serves as a single source of incident related information and is managed by Incident Management Teams or local agencies.
