Fire restrictions lifted in state parks

Staff report

Fire restrictions expired today in all of Nevada’s state parks, according to the The Nevada Division of State Parks.

Increased fuel moisture levels and much cooler temperatures across the state have allowed the Nevada Division of State Parks to follow the lead of other public agencies in lifting fire restrictions that were in place for most of the summer.

Park visitors still need to be cautious and extremely careful with fire. While conditions have improved, park vegetation is still flammable.

Park officials urge everyone to be fire safe with all outdoor activities, which includes making certain any open fires are not left unattended and are completely extinguished when they leave.

Whenever possible, the use of propane stoves and charcoal grill fires is still preferred over open campfires.
