Fire restriction across large swath of central Utah.

RICHFIELD, Utah — The Central Utah Fire Interagency is implementing new fire restrictions across a large swath of the state.

The restrictions, which take effect July 1, impact parts of Sanpete, Juab, Millard, Sevier, Wayne and Piute Counties.

Due to the increasing potential of human-caused fires, dry conditions and high fire danger, the following acts are prohibited until further notice:

  • Igniting, building, maintaining or using a fire — including charcoal and briquettes — outside a fire structure within a designated area is prohibited.
  • All debris burning is strictly prohibited.

The restrictions will be enforced in the following areas:

  • Unincorporated privately owned and all lands administered by the Utah Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands.
  • Incorporated towns and cities are not included, but residents should contact their local fire departments for municipal restrictions.
  • Bureau of Land Management land in Sanpete, Juab, Millard, Sevier, Wayne and Piute Counties.
  • Fillmore, Fremont River, Beaver and Richfield Ranger Districts in the Fishlake National Forest.
  • Capitol Reef National Park.
