Stage 1 Fire Restrictions to be lifted in southwest Idaho

With cooler temperatures lowering the threat of wildfires, state and federal land management agencies will lift Stage 1 Fire Restrictions on all lands within southwest Idaho effective Sept. 21, 2018 beginning at 12:01 a.m.

The Stage 1 fire restrictions will be lifted in the Treasure Valley, West Central Mountains, Snake/Weiser River, and Owyhee Mountains of Idaho, which includes all federal, state and private forestland and rangeland in:

Ada, Adams, Canyon, Gem, Payette, Elmore, Boise, Valley, Washington and Owyhee Counties, Washington County -- all Bureau of Reclamation lands surrounding Mann Creek Reservoir, Valley County -- all Bureau of Reclamation lands surrounding Lake Cascade, Elmore and Boise counties -- all Bureau of Reclamation lands surrounding Arrowrock and Anderson Ranch reservoirs.

Fire managers are asking the public to continue to be extra cautious when spending time in the outdoors. As a reminder, fireworks are prohibited on state and private forestland and rangeland during closed fire season (May 10 through October 20), and on public lands, roads and trails in Idaho all times of the year.
