Fremont County bans fires

Tinder-dry conditions in Colorado have prompted another county to ban fires.

Fremont County Commissioners and Sheriff James Beicker adopted a countywide fire ban Wednesday morning. The restrictions primarily prohibit all open burning.

If you have any questions, phone the Fremont County Sheriff's Office at 276-5555.

Yesterday, El Paso County imposed burning restrictions.
