Fire Danger is EXTREME on the #SanJuanNF and fire restrictions are in place. Restrictions prohibit campfires, which can and do cause wildfires.

In June,18 illegal campfires have been discovered on the San Juan–6 of them in the last week. The consequences are potentially catastrophic for an escaped campfire during extreme conditions. The fine for igniting, building, maintaining, attending or using a fire, including charcoal grills, is minimum $300.

The image below demonstrates how campfires escape, creeping in duff and flammable debris on the ground, even under rock barriers.

Do your part to prevent human-caused wildfires.
