LAS VEGAS — Wildland fire officials will lift seasonal fire restrictions today on public lands in southern Nevada managed by the Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, National Park Service, Nevada Division of Forestry, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and U.S. Forest Service.

Fire managers base decisions about fire restrictions on specific moisture measurements in vegetation and other risk factors. Recent moisture in much of southern Nevada has significantly lowered the fire danger, but land managers still urge the public to remain vigilant with fire.

“Lower fire danger does not mean no fire danger,” said Marty Woods, assistant fire management officer for the U.S. Forest Service. “We ask that visitors continue to be safe with campfires and other sources of ignition.”

Fire restrictions will continue in some parts of the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area until Nov. 15. Those restrictions are as follows: no campfires within one mile of homes in Kyle and Lee Canyons, Deer Creek, Cold Creek and the communities of Trout Canyon and Mountain Springs. Signs are posted in these areas advising the public of these restrictions.
