Fire Restrictions Rescinded in Central Utah

Release Date: Aug 27, 2021

Contact(s): Naomi Gordon

Due to recent precipitation and improved wildfire danger conditions, Central Utah Interagency Fire Managers will remove all fire restrictions beginning Friday, August 27, 2021, at 00:01 a.m. on all federally administered public lands, state lands, and unincorporated private lands in Juab, Millard, Beaver, Sanpete, Sevier, Piute, Wayne, and Garfield counties.   

Important Reminders: Fire managers continue to urge caution as wildfire danger constantly changes.  This time of year produces cooler nights and very warm, dry, and windy days.  Please be responsible while enjoying your outdoor activities, as the potential for human-caused wildfires still exist.  

Fire managers also advise you to make “fire sense” decisions and refrain from campfires on dry and windy days. And remember that it is always illegal to leave a campfire unattended, as every spark has potential to cause damage. Thanks for doing your part to prevent wildfires in Utah!
