The U.S. Forest service sent out an alert tonight saying that fire and smoking restrictions have been lifted on public lands in Pike National Forest and Lake County in San Isabel National Forest.
They credit all of our recent rain to being able to lift this ban.
Stage 2 fire restrictions remain for public lands in Baca, Otero, Park, Chaffee, Fremont, Custer, Pueblo, Huerfano, and Las Animas counties.
Forest Service officials say fire danger remains extreme for the Comanche National Grassland and San Isabel National Forest with the exception of Lake County.
