Larimer County lifts fire restrictions

The Board of Larimer County Commissioners lifted fire restrictions at their Aug. 7 administrative matters meeting. This was at the recommendation of Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith.

“At this time we are not in high fire danger and the fire restriction criteria that we use indicates that we do not need to be in any restrictions,” said Smith. “Surrounding county’s and the USFS have also removed their restrictions and bans.”

Although the forecast is for typical August weather with the usual monsoonal flow of moisture into the area, citizens are reminded to be careful with fire and potential sources of ignition. Fire restrictions were set to expire September 30.
