Fire Restriction Order
Due to current and forecasted weather conditions coupled with the extremely dry vegetation conditions
in northern Utah, the State Forester, in consultation with the county commission of each of the affected
counties, has determined that measures must be taken to prevent the ignition of forest and rangeland
fires. Therefore, pursuant to Utah State Law, Section 65A-8-212, the following acts are prohibited in
the areas described below until rescinded by the Utah State Forester:
1. Setting, building, maintaining, attending or using open fires of any kind, except within the
facilities designated for them in improved campgrounds, picnic areas or home sites where
running water is present.
2. Smoking, except within an enclosed vehicle, trailer or building, a developed recreation site or
while stopped in an area that is paved or free from dry vegetation.
3. Discharging or using any fireworks, tracer ammunition or other pyrotechnic devices including
exploding targets.
4. Cutting, welding or grinding metal in areas of dry vegetation.
5. Operating a motorcycle, chainsaw, ATV, or other small internal combustion engine without
an approved and working spark arrestor.
The following persons are exempted from the above prohibitions:
1. Persons with a permit or waiver issued by the Division, specifically authorizing a specified act
at a specific location. A waiver does not relieve the permittee of liability if a fire does occur.
2. Any on-duty firefighter in the performance of an official duty.
Area Description: All unincorporated private and all state lands within the following area: All of Box
Elder, Cache, Rich and Weber counties. This order does not affect private lands within incorporated
towns or city limits.
Any of the above acts is a violation of state law and is punishable by up to 6 months in jail and a
fine of up to $1,000. These restrictions will be enforced by county law enforcement.
