Fire ban rescinded for western Boulder County

Lower temperatures and additional moisture have decreased fire danger

Boulder County, Colo. - On Friday, March 31st, 2017, Sheriff Joe Pelle rescinded the fire ban that was in place for western Boulder County.
The lower temperatures and additional moisture we have received have decreased the wildfire danger to our community.
Residents are also reminded that although the fire ban has been rescinded, there are still permit requirements in place for slash burning and broadcast burns, also known as prescribed fires. Permits are available online at: www.bouldercounty.org/safety/fire/pages/openburnpermit.aspx or at the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office Headquarters, located at 5600 Flatiron Pkwy., Boulder or the Sheriff’s Office Fire Cache, located at 3116 Longhorn Rd., Boulder.
