Web-first update: Fire ban changed to partial

Posted: Tuesday, Oct 2nd, 2012

TORRINGTON – Goshen County Fire Warden Bill Law announced Tuesday the Goshen County Commission approved changing the full fire ban to a partial fire ban on all state and private land in the county.

“Conditions are still dry,” Law reminded residents in a statement released Tuesday morning. “All residents, landowners and outdoorsmen need to apply common sense and practice fire safety with cam fires and outdoor burning.”

Law added Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality rules and regulations regarding smoke should also be taken into account. Questions about air quality issues should be directed to 307-777-7346.

A partial fire ban means the discharge of fireworks is still banned. There should be a clear zone established for trash and refuse fires along with spark arrest units. Campfires should always be built in established campground fire rings. There is a more complete description of all county fire regulations at the Fire Warden’s office, which can be reached at 532-7952 or by emailing Bill Law at blaw@goshencounty.org.

Residents, landowners and others interested in burning are reminded to call the Torrington Dispatch Center at 532-7001 when they plan a burn. Give the dispatcher your location, when you plan to start and when you have it extinguished.
