In September and October of 2019, the Decker Fire crested Methodist Mountain located in Chaffee County. The Decker Fire burned around 9,000 acres of land in Chaffee County and land in the San Luis Valley, stretching into Fremont County.

Chaffee County is currently under Stage 2 Fire Restrictions, which means: If you can not turn the flame off it is not allowed.

These lands include all unincorporated land in Chaffee County, with the exception of Forest Service land, BLM land as well as the City of Salida, the Town of Buena Vista and the Town of Poncha Springs.

Please no fires as we aim to keep our community safe from experiencing a fire much like our surrounding communities are experiencing.
