Fire restrictions lifted in Eldorado National Forest

Fire restrictions are removed today in the Eldorado National Forest because recent rains have dampened terrain.

The wetter conditions have returned to the Eldorado National Forest just in time for Saturday's start to the deer hunting season, according to a forest service press release.

Still, Forest Supervisor Laurence Crabtree reminds forest visitors to build campfires in accordance with permit regulations.

Free campfire permits are available at Eldorado National Forest offices.

Forest officials note that this time of year wind becomes the fire problem in the forest. Campfires should not be built when there is a wind.

And, after leaving a campfire, make sure it is out: "It is important that people drown their campfire and test it with their hand to make sure there is no heat in it before leaving it unattended," said Crabtree.
