Fire Restrictions lifting in central Idaho 

SALMON, Idaho- Effective Friday, Sept. 25 at 12:01 a.m., public land managers in central Idaho will lift Stage I Fire Restrictions.  

Bureau of Land Management Idaho Falls District will lift restrictions in areas of central Idaho described as follows: all BLM Idaho Falls District lands in Lemhi, Custer and Butte 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 central Idaho is still in Very 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.
