WILDFIRE DANGER IS MODERATE
When the fire danger is "MODERATE," 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.
Summit County and the White River National Forest have entered into Stage 2 fire restrictions, effective on Oct. 20, 2020. This prohibits ALL OPEN FIRES, including those in established campgrounds and on private property, as well as charcoal grills. Gas-fired grills are permissible.
