Wildfire Danger is MODERATE, campfire restrictions are in place

WILDFIRE DANGER IS MODERATE

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 "moderate" it means that fires can start from most accidental causes, but the number of fire starts is usually pretty low. If a fire does start in an open, dry grassland, it will burn and spread quickly on windy days. Most wood fires will spread slowly to moderately. Average fire intensity will be moderate except in heavy concentrations of fuel, which may burn hot. Fires are still not likely to become serious and are often easy to control.
