Fire ban placed on WGF properties and public access areas


Prolonged dry conditions have prompted the Wyoming Game and Fish Department to ban open fires on all Game and Fish Commission-owned and administered lands within the Laramie Region.

“Areas are drying out and have created excellent fuel conditions and the potential for human-caused fires has become very high,” said Jerry Cowles, Habitat and Access supervisor in Laramie.

Affected lands include all public access areas within the Laramie Region.

The following acts are prohibited until further notice: Building, maintaining, attending or using a fire, campfire charcoal grill, coal or wood burning stove.

Smoking except within an enclosed vehicle or building, a developed recreation site, or while stopped in an area at least three feet in diameter that is barren or cleared of all flammable material.

For more information on the fire ban on Game and Fish lands contact the Laramie Region Game and Fish Office at (307) 745-4046.
