WILDFIRE DANGER IS 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.
Summit County and the White River National Forest have entered into Stage 2 fire restrictions, effective on Aug. 14, 2020. This prohibits ALL OPEN FIRES, including those in established campgrounds and on private property, as well as charcoal grills. Gas-fired grills are permissible.
