(Wyo.)-BLM Lifts Some State Fire Restrictions
BUFFALO, Wyo. (AP) - The U.S. Bureau of Land Management has lifted fire restrictions on agency lands overseen by the Buffalo, Newcastle and Casper field offices.
Kirk Strom is fire management officer at the BLM's High Plains District Office. He says the agency issued very few citations for violation of the fire restrictions while they were in effect.
Recent cooler temperatures and increased moisture have improved conditions enough that the BLM is allowing campfires, smoking, operating chain saws on agency lands in the affected districts. Some other activities, including using fireworks, remain prohibited on agency lands.
