Pueblo, CO: Pueblo County Sheriff Kirk M. Taylor, in consultation with county fire chiefs, is

implementing Stage 1 fire restrictions, effective at 4 p.m. today for Pueblo County due to the ongoing

dry conditions and high fire danger that persists in the region.

Sheriff Taylor, who is the fire warden for the county, said the decision to impose fire restrictions is

not taken lightly but the current conditions and an extended weather forecast predicting little to no

precipitation increases the fire danger.

“With the windy, dry weather and low moisture levels, that’s a strong indication of the fire danger

that exists in the area,” Taylor said. “Although vegetation is starting to turn green with the lack of

moisture, it’s still very dry out there.”
