Southern Ute Reservation Rescinds Stage I Fire Restrictions
Southern Ute Indian Reservation – After a long and arduous fire season, widespread moisture finally occurred throughout the Southern Ute Indian Reservation allowing Stage I fire restrictions to be rescinded.
Fire Restrictions have been in place since early May and during that time there have been a total of 38 fires on the reservation with the largest being the 220 acre Six Shooter fire. Southern Ute Agency fire personnel have also travelled to fires throughout the country, working on fires in California, Oregon, and northern Colorado.
Although the fire danger has diminished, we still ask that everyone on reservation lands be cautious with fire.
If you have any further questions, please contact Southern Ute Agency Fire Management at (970) 563-4571.
The Stage I Fire Restrictions are rescinded at 6:00 A.M, October 28, 2020.
