The U.S. Bureau of Land Management's Casper Field Office is removing the partial fire restrictions imposed in early August because of recent moisture and lessening fire dangers, according to a news release.

People may now have camp fires at recreation sites on BLM-administered lands within the boundaries of the Casper Field Office beginning today. The field office administers lands in Natrona, Converse, Platte and Goshen counties.

However, BLM still maintains these year-round wildfire prevention restrictions on its lands:

  • Discharge or use of any fireworks.
  • Discharge of a firearm using incendiary or tracer ammunition.
  • Burn, ignite or cause to burn any tire, wire, magnesium, or any other hazardous or explosive material.
  • Operate any off-road vehicle unless the vehicle is equipped with a properly installed spark arrester pursuant to 43 CFR 8343.1 (c).
 Local fire restrictions imposed by local governments may still be in effect for fires not on BLM lands.

Visitors are encouraged to check Wyoming fire restrictions at the state's Forestry Division's fire information website.
