Foothills County sets fire advisory effective Oct. 15

Extra caution should still be used with fires

Foothills County has announced a fire restriction previously set on Sept. 9 has been lifted, and a fire advisory is now in place. 

Fire permits are being issued for Class1 (10x10x5 and under) and Class 2 (10x10x5 and over) fires, but may be cancelled at any time with little to no notice.

Although this is not a fire ban or restriction, the County is asking citizens to use extra caution and be extra vigilant when burning while the advisory is in effect. Soaking the area adjacent to the open fire pits with water is recommended. Citizens are also reminded that obtaining a fire permit is mandatory at all times. 

Permits can be applied for on the County website. If conditions change, the County may impose a fire ban or restriction at any time. If a fire ban or restriction is imposed, you must immediately and fully extinguish your fire, all existing permits will become void and no new permits will be issued.
