The Bureau of Land Management has reduced fire restrictions to stage one on its lands within several Colorado counties.

Custer, Fremont, Huerfano, Las Animas, Pueblo and Teller counties will see reduced fire bans – which will allow fires in permanetn fire grants or grills within developed recreation sites, as well as cooking stoves fueled by liquid petroleum that are equipped with a valve.

Campfires are still banned in undeveloped areas, as are fireworks and smoking cigarettes.

Colorado Springs has already eased its fire ban, as has the city of Manitou.
