Forest Service Lifts Campfire, Shooting Bans

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — The U.S. Forest Service is lifting bans on campfires and recreational target shooting in the Boulder Ranger District of the Arapaho and Roosevelt national forests.

Forest Service officials say recent rains have improved conditions. The bans began in April on open fires, smoking outside vehicles or buildings and using firearms except when hunting.

The bans were imposed after several major wildfires ravaged the Front Range this spring and summer.
