BLM Issues Fire Restrictions for Northeast Wyoming

(Newcastle, Wyo.) The Bureau of Land Management's Northeast Field Office in Newcastle has issued fire restrictions for Weston, Crook, and Niobrara Counties due to dry conditions in this part of the state. Campfires, smoking, and operating a chain saw or welding without proper safety precautions are now restricted. This is in addition to normal year-round restrictions of fireworks, tire fires, and restrictions on firearms and off-road vehicles. So far there are no restrictions in the Campbell County area. You can check on fire restrictions by county at the BLM website . *Stock photo h/t Adrian Schüpbach // Pitchengine Communities* #county17 #news
