Arapahoe County lifts open burning ban

Posted

The Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office has rescinded the open-burning ban that had been in effect in unincorporated Arapahoe County, the City of Centennial, and the towns of Deer Trail and Foxfield.

Recent moisture has lowered wildfire potential, the sheriff's office said in a news release.

Although the ban has been lifted, the sheriff's office still cautions residents as they resume using open-flame fires. Grasses and other fuels can dry out quickly and pose a threat to rapid fire spread, the sheriff's office said in the release.

Refrain from buring during windy conditions and have a readily available water supply, the release said. Those considering open burns should also check with their local fire department for district specific permits related to burning, the release said.
