CHEYENNE COUNTY FIRE BAN
On March 19, 2018 the Board of County Commissioners of Cheyenne County, Colorado adopted resolution #2018-05 concerning open burning in Cheyenne County. The Board recognizes and acknowledges the current fire danger in the county resulting from a lack of moisture with the existing dry conditions. The Board believes that a temporary ban on open fires within the unincorporated areas of the County is necessary to protect property, livestock, wildlife and the citizens of the county.
This ban on “open burning” means any outdoor fire, including but not limited to campfires, warming fires, charcoal grill fires, fused explosives, fireworks and any other activity that poses a significant risk of starting a fire.
This ban does not includes fires in liquid-fueled or gas-fueled stoves; fireplaces contained in buildings; charcoal grills at private residences; constructed, permanent fire pits or fire grates within developed camp and picnic grounds or recreation sites; commercial, professional and municipal fireworks displays where specific written approval has been granted by the Board of County Commissioners; connection with prescribed or controlled burns for agricultural or irrigation purposes along ditches located within and completely surrounded by irrigated farmlands where such burning is necessary for crop survival and specific written approval has been granted by the Board of County Commissioners.
The ban shall continue in effect until revoked by another public notice published in the local newspaper of general circulation with the County, after weather conditions improve significantly, and the fire danger significantly subsides.
