Boulder County and Lyons rescind fire ban

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Boulder County, Colo. - The Sheriff's Office and the Town of Lyons have rescinded the fire ban in Boulder County and Lyons. With the recent rainfall and cooler temperatures the current fire conditions have returned to normal for this time of year. The long term weather forecast indicates continued moisture and higher fuel moisture, greatly decreasing large fire growth potential. In addition, fire activity across the state, region and nation is minimal; therefore, fire aviation and ground suppression resources are abundant. 

The Sheriff’s Office reminds citizens that prior to burning (slash or broadcast burns) they must obtain a permit.  Permits may be obtained online or in person at the Sheriff’s Office, 5600 Flatiron Parkway, Boulder, CO, 80301.  Agricultural burns and campfires are excluded from the permit requirement. 

 For current fire and shooting restrictions, visit the the United States Forest Service properties website.
