WILDFIRE DANGER IS VERY HIGH, CAMPFIRE RESTRICTIONS ARE IN PLACE

Fire Danger Level: Very High
When the fire danger is "VERY HIGH," fires will start easily from most causes. The fires will spread rapidly and have a quick increase in intensity, right after ignition. Small fires can quickly become large fires and exhibit extreme fire intensity, such as long-distance spotting and fire whirls. These fires can be difficult to control and will often become much larger and longer-lasting fires.

The Summit County Board of Commissioners enacted Stage 1 Fire Restrictions, effective at 12:01 a.m. Friday, June 18. The commissioners enacted the change during a special meeting Tuesday, in recognition of the extremely high fire danger resulting from record-breaking temperatures this past week and decreased precipitation, which has led to early season wildfire activity in the county, including the Straight Creek fire, which occurred this past Thursday and was just brought under control over the weekend.

Due to the elevated fire danger, slash-burning permits all have been cancelled.
