The Bureau of Land Management fire ban is no longer in effect for lands the BLM manages in its Glenwood Springs and Grand Junction offices.County fire restrictions in Garfield County will remain, as well as for private lands in Eagle and Pitkin counties.”We’ve benefited from the public’s excellent cooperation this fire season,” said Grand Junction Field Manager Catherine Robertson. “In what has been one of the driest summers on record here in the Grand Valley, there have been no significant human-caused fires.”Although recent rains have helped, fuels are still dry and the potential for fire remains. The public should still use caution and is reminded that using fireworks is prohibited on federal land year-round.Although recent rains have helped, fuels are still dry and the potential for fire remains.
