CAMPING -- Don't plan on a campfire in many public areas for the rest of the month. Prolonged heat and dry weather has most public land agencies issuing restrictions on fires.
Citing extreme conditions, Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area officials have announced that starting Friday, Aug. 19, all fires are banned in the area until further notice.
No open flames are permitted. This includes, but is not limited to; all fires in NPS provided fire rings and boxes, charcoal fires, tiki torches, incense burners, candles, and propane campfires. Exceptions include self-contained propane or gas stoves or lanterns.
