CHAFFEE COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE
Salida, Colorado
PRESS RELEASE
August 19, 2020
Due to the continuous drying conditions coupled with the four major wildland fires burning in the State of Colorado which have depleted available firefighting resources the unincorporated lands of Chaffee County will move back into Stage 2 Fire Restrictions effective at 6pm today.
Stage 2 Fire Restrictions prohibit all open flames, including any type of open burning, fireworks, exploding targets and charcoal grills. Gas grills are allowed as long as the flame can be shut off with a valve.
Effective today as well the BLM, Bureau of Land Management, moved into Stage 1 Fire Restrictions, see BLM Regulations for an explanation of restrictions, on BLM lands within Chaffee, Fremont and Lake Counties.
Chaffee County Sheriff John Spezze has been in contact with the USFS, San Isabel National Forest, and they anticipate moving back into fire restrictions by late this week or early next week.
