Fire danger is moderate throughout much of Larimer County at this time, but that may change quickly if high temperatures and low moisture continue.  The Larimer County Sheriff’s Office and fire departments continue to monitor conditions and will recommend the appropriate level of fire restrictions if necessary. 

We encourage residents and visitors to exercise caution with any potential source of ignition as conditions change:

  • Campfires – only build campfires when and where authorized, do not leave them unattended, and put them out completely.  Use ample water and stir until the coals are cool to the touch.
  • Cigarette and cigar butts – dispose of lit smoking materials properly.
  • Heat transfer from exhaust systems – do no park a vehicle in areas with tall grass that could catch fire.
  • Grinding and welding – keep a shovel and fire extinguisher close and ready to use as these activities can start fires.
  • Lawn mowers – metal blades striking rocks can create sparks and start fires.

More information regarding wildfire preparedness and prevention is available on our website.  Fire restriction information is available at https://www.larimer.org/emergency/mitigating-against-hazards/larimer-county-fire-restrictions.  Please be careful and assist in protecting our county and its residents from fire danger.
