*** PRESS RELEASE September 30, 2020 ***
Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest Supervisor, David Whittenkiend, has signed an order extending Stage 1 fire restrictions through October 15, 2020. These Stage 1 restrictions were put in place on August 13, 2020, due to extremely dry vegetation, lack of precipitation, and continuing incidents of human-caused fires. These restrictions prohibit open fires, including charcoal and briquettes, outside a fire structure that is provided by the Forest Service within a designated camping area. All Forest users, especially campers and hunters, are urged to follow the restrictions as they are designed for the protection of those who visit National Forest lands. Details of the Stage 1 restrictions are detailed in the attached order.
