Bans on open burning canceled


Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson has canceled the open burn ban issued June 13 for the county, the city of Centennial and Cherry Creek State Park. Englewood followed suit, announcing the lifting of its open burning ban on the city’s website.

Additional moisture and favorable weather conditions prompted the move, according to a press release from Robinson’s office.

The sheriff’s office and local fire departments will continue to monitor the potential fire danger and will initiate open burning bans as conditions require. Although the level of danger for fires has modified, residents are encouraged to exercise caution when burning or interacting with any fire source.

For additional information, please contact the sheriff’s office at 720-874-4165.
