4th of July Fire Restrictions + Safety
Due to current and forecasted weather conditions coupled with the extremely dry conditions in southwestern Utah, the State Forester has determined that measures must be taken to prevent costly and damaging forest and rangeland fires. Please see restrictions here.
As exciting as this may seem, people often forget that they are playing with explosive materials, dangerous chemicals and combustibles that can destroy property, harm or cause death to unsuspecting victims. These deceptively simple objects explode, throwing unburned powder, hot sparks and embers through the air at high velocities and often create temperatures hotter than 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit.
