Fire Restrictions Lifted for Now
Partial fire restrictions were lifted for BLM-administered public land in Crook, Weston and Niobrara Counties, as of May 13.
The restrictions were lifted due to cooler and wetter weather conditions across eastern Wyoming.
The following fire restrictions are in effect year-round on BLM-administered public lands in Wyoming. These prohibitions are:
• Discharge or use of any fireworks.
• Discharge of a firearm using incendiary or tracer ammunition.
• Burn, ignite or cause to burn any tire, wire, magnesium, or any other hazardous or explosive material.
• Operate any off-road vehicle on public lands unless the vehicle is equipped with a properly installed spark arrester pursuant to 43 CFR 8343.1 (c).
