BLM places fire restrictions

The Bureau of Land Management has followed in the county’s footsteps and placed stage one fire restrictions on its public lands in Crook, Weston and Niobrara counties.

“Last summer’s moisture and cool weather brought an abundance of grass and other fine fuels to public lands within the district,” says High Plains District Fire Management Officer Craig Short.

“This, in combination with the lack of moisture and warm, windy weather we’re experiencing, has created an environment susceptible to wildfires.”

It is now prohibited to building, maintain, attend or use a fire or campfire on BLM lands.
