City of Wheat Ridge Implements Stage 2 Fire Ban

With the high fire danger across our state this year due to the lack of rain, the City of Wheat Ridge Emergency Manager has implemented a temporary Stage 2 fire ban recently enacted by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.

The use of fire pits, fire rings and Chimineas are also banned for private use during a Stage 2 fire ban. Currently only devices that are liquid fueled or gas fueled are allowed. In other words, gas grills, gas fire pits, gas stoves, and gas lanterns are allowed. All charcoal grills in City of Wheat Ridge parks are NOT authorized for use during the fire ban and have been covered by Wheat Ridge Parks & Forestry. 

In addition, please safely extinguish cigarettes inside your car or in appropriate containers. More information from the Wheat Ridge Emergency Manager on Fire Restrictions in Wheat Ridge
