Fire Danger & Restrictions

As of

Current Fire Danger

As of


HIGH - Fires start easily and spread at a fast rate. All fine dead fuels ignite readily and fires start easily from most causes. Unattended campfires are likely to escape. Fires spread rapidly and short-distance spotting is common. High- intensity burning may develop on slopes, or in concentrations of fine fuel. Fire may become serious and difficult to control unless they are hit hard and fast while small.

Current Fire Restrictions

As of


No restrictions at this time. Keep checking this page for the latest fire danger and restrictions.

Implementation of Fire Restrictions

We follow the fire science into restrictions and our matrix works the same way for assessing this science when we reduce restrictions as well. We are reminding the public who will use fire for recreation or other reasons to exercise safe practices to make an area safe to have a fire, fully extinguish it, and report any unattended fires.

What are Fire Restrictions?

Fire restrictions can originate from many places. Federal agencies such as the US Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, and the National Park Service can impose restrictions on the public land they manage. Individual states can impose restrictions on state-managed land. Counties may impose bans on private lands within county borders. Confusion can result from the multiple agency jurisdictions, especially when adjacent lands have different restrictions depending on the administering agency.
