IDAHO FALLS, Idaho – The Bureau of Land Management Idaho Falls District, Idaho Department of Lands and the Caribou-Targhee National Forest are lifting Stage One Fire Restrictions effective Friday, Aug. 31, 2018 at 12:01 a.m. This affects BLM-managed public lands, IDL lands and Caribou-Targhee NF lands in nine eastern Idaho counties.

Stage One Fire Restrictions will be lifted on BLM-managed public lands, IDL lands and Caribou-Targhee NF lands in Bannock, Bonneville, Bingham, Jefferson, Madison, Power, Oneida Counties and a portion of Butte and Blaine Counties.

Lifting the restrictions means the public is free to build a campfire, use a charcoal barbecue, or smoke outside of designated campgrounds and recreation sites. Fire managers are reminding people that eastern Idaho is still in High Fire Danger, and to use water to put out all campfires and to soak all charcoal and hot ash from barbecue grills and stoves.

The BLM Fire Prevention Order remains in effect for all BLM-managed lands within Idaho. This order prohibits discharging, using or possessing fireworks, discharging a firearm using incendiary, steel core or tracer ammunition, or burning, igniting or causing to burn explosive material, including exploding targets.

Please check if fire restrictions are in place before heading out to enjoy your public lands. Many areas in Idaho still have fire restrictions in effect. For additional information, please visit http://www.idahofireinfo.com or call the Idaho Fire Restrictions Hotline at 1.844.433.4737.

County and local officials should be contacted regarding fire restrictions outside the described areas.
