Arapahoe, Roosevelt Forests Restrict Fires

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — The Arapahoe and Roosevelt national forests have imposed fire restrictions on three ranger districts because of unusually warm and dry conditions.

The restrictions were announced Wednesday and go into effect Thursday. They cover the Boulder, Canyon Lakes and Clear Creek ranger districts.

The restrictions include limits on fires, tobacco smoking and motorized off-road travel. Fireworks are banned. Discharging firearms is prohibited except for hunting with a valid hunting license.

The complete list of restrictions will be available Thursday under the “Alerts & Warnings” section at http://www.fs.usda.gov/arp.
