Winnemucca, Nev. - The Bureau of Land Management Battle Mountain District Office, Winnemucca District Office, and the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest’s Santa Rosa Ranger District are lifting fire restrictions that have been in place since July 13th. Restrictions will expire at 12:01 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 30.

According to agency Fire Management Officers, decreasing daily sunlight, increasing fuel moisture levels, and cooler evening temperatures are responsible for lifting fire restrictions. However, the potential threat of wildfires remains, so they encourage the public to continue enjoying their federal, state, and private lands responsibly by being very careful with any fire.

Recreationists are reminded to be fire safe with all their outdoor activities, including ensuring that campfires are dead out. Leaving campfires unattended is a class B misdemeanor. Other important reminders for all outdoor enthusiasts include the following: 

  • The use of propane stoves versus campfires and charcoal grill fires is still preferred in dry conditions.
  • Only adults should build and maintain campfires.
  • Never leave a campfire unattended. To extinguish it, keep a pail of water or shovel close by at all times.
  • Use existing fire-rings where it is safe to do so.
  • Clear vegetation and debris down to bare soil within 10 feet around campfire.
  • Use wood no bigger than the fire ring.
  • Keep tents and other burnable materials away from the fire.
  • Be certain your campfire is completely out before you go to bed or leave the area. Pour water on the fire and douse the site thoroughly. Stir the campfire until there are no embers and the ashes are cold to the touch. Remember, if it is too hot to touch, it is too hot to leave.

For more information, please contact the Winnemucca District office at 775-623-1500, the Battle Mountain office at 775-635-4000 or the Santa Rosa office at 775-623-5025 ex. 4.
