Medicine Bow-Routt Toughens Fire Restrictions

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest and Thunder Basin National Grassland has implemented additional fire restrictions because of the dry, hot weather.

The Medicine Bow National Forest already has seen two large wildfires this year.

It is now illegal to build or use an open fire, campfire, stove fire or charcoal grill on the forest and grassland. Visitors may use petroleum fueled stoves, grills, or lanterns in areas that have been cleared of all vegetation for three feet on all sides.

Off-road vehicle use is no longer allowed except when parking in areas cleared of vegetation and as allowed on the applicable Motor Vehicle Use Map.

Smoking also is prohibited except within an enclosed vehicle or building.
