Rio Grande National Forest Fire Danger high

SAN LUIS VALLEY - Gregg Goodland with Rio Grande National Forest (RGNF) stated, “The current Fire Danger rating is High. RGNF is under Stage 2 fire restrictions.  High winds and extreme dry conditions make it far more difficult to control wildfires. If everyone uses a little extra caution when outside during these conditions, it goes a long way to reducing the human caused fires.”  The Stage 2 Order prohibits the following acts:

 Igniting, building, maintaining, attending or using a fire, including charcoal grills and barbecues, coal and wood burning stoves, and sheepherder’s stoves.

Smoking, except within an enclosed vehicle, trailer or building.
