GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - Most of Western Colorado is under stage 1 or stage 2 fire restrictions, while very few parts are under no fire restrictions. A stage 1 fire restriction means that you should not have a campfire or stove fire unless the fire is in a permanent firepit within a developed recreation site. Smoking should be limited to an enclosed building or vehicle, developed recreation site, or area that is three feet in diameter with no flammable material. Areas under stage 1 fire restriction include the entire White River National Forest as well as BLM land in Summit, Eagle and Pitkin counties as well as portions of Grand County. All lands in both Mesa and Garfield counties are under a stage 1 fire restriction. Stage 2 restrictions are a ban on all fires except devices that use pressurized liquid or gas and have a shut off valve, and are at least three feet or more from flammable material. Smoking is only allowed in an enclosed vehichle, building, or trailer. All internal combustion engines must have a spark arresting device in effective working order. Currently. the top of the Grand Mesa does not have any fire restrictions in place.
