Wildfire Danger is HIGH, campfire restrictions are in place

WILDFIRE DANGER IS HIGH

Note: As of Aug. 23, 2019, fire restrictions are in place throughout Summit County. Fires are prohibited in undeveloped areas. Fires are allowed in designated metal fire rings in developed campgrounds and in commercially manufactured fireplaces or chimineas with screens. When the fire danger is "high," fires can start easily from most causes and small fuels (such as grasses and needles) will ignite readily. Unattended campfires and brush fires are likely to escape. Fires will spread easily, with some areas of high-intensity burning on slopes or concentrated fuels. Fires can become serious and difficult to control unless they are put out while they are still small.
