Effective November 23, 2010 at 1:30 pm
Recent heavy precipitation and future weather outlooks indicate the fire danger/hazard for the County has been lessened. As a result, the Douglas County Board of County Commissioners has ordered a temporary suspension of Stage 1-Fire Restrictions, which have been in effect since October 18, 2010. Unincorporated Douglas County is no longer under fire restrictions at this time.
Although the severe fire danger has temporarily decreased, we must all recognize that wildfire danger does still pose a threat. Sheriff David A Weaver reminds everyone to use caution when starting and extinguishing campfires, disposing of lighted materials such as cigarettes, and any other activities that involve the use of fire or sparks.
