Stage I Fire Restrictions and related restrictions on discharging firearms will be lifted effective midnight on July 18 on the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests.

Recent moisture levels have changed fire conditions enough to lift the restrictions on the national forest. Visitors are reminded that conditions can change quickly so it is important to continue to be careful and diligent with every fire, and ensure campfires are completely extinguished and cold to the touch.

Visitors are also encouraged to check for the status of local county fire restrictions that may still be in place and affect campfires, shooting and other activities on 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 Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests and Pawnee National Grassland visit
