BLM Puts Fire Restrictions In Place In Three Counties

AP 6-7,2016

The official start of summer is still a couple of weeks away, but some fire restrictions are already being put in place in areas of northeast Wyoming.

The Bureau of Land Management says it is putting partial fire restrictions on its lands in Wyoming’s Weston, Crook and Niobrara counties due to dry conditions and high fire danger.

The partial restrictions include prohibiting campfires outside agency-provided fire grates at developed recreation sites.
