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.
