Grand Mesa National Forest, which previously was not affected by the fire restrictions in place on the rest of the GMUG, is now under Stage 1 restrictions. The remainder of GMUG is in Stage 2.

Fire managers base decisions about fire restrictions on specific fuel moisture measurements in vegetation and other risk factors such as predicted weather and amount of current fire activity. Fire danger is increasing and these restrictions will be implemented to protect public health and safety due to the current and anticipated elevated risk of wildfire. Fire restrictions on these lands will be in place until further notice.

Under Stage 1, the following are prohibited on Grand Mesa:

Fires, campfires or stove fires, including but not limited to charcoal grills, hibachis, or coal or wood-burning stoves. The exception is campfires in grates and grills within Forest Service developed campgrounds and picnic grounds, and petroleum-fueled stoves or lanterns. Smoking, welding, explosives and the use of chainsaws are also restricted. See the details at http://bit.ly/GMUGFireRestrictions.
