Kaysville puts fire restrictions into effect

Jun 17, 2021 01:06PM ● By Cindi Mansell

KAYSVILLE—Fire restrictions have been implemented for all areas defined as High Fire Hazard (see map) as of 12 a.m. on Wednesday, June 16. This is being done for public health and safety and to reduce the potential for human-caused fires (as authorized under Kaysville City Code and Utah State Code). 

Under the restrictions, charcoal, coal, and wood stoves are allowed only in a grill, located in a residential yard. Fires and campfires are not allowed in the affected area. The restrictions also limit smoking to within enclosed vehicles, buildings, in developed campgrounds, or while stopped in an area at least three feet in diameter that is barren or cleared of any flammable material. Using a device that is solely fueled by liquid petroleum or LPG fuels that can be turned on and off is allowed in areas that are clear of flammable materials.

Implementation of fire restrictions normally occurs based on a combination of factors that are carefully measured. Criteria used to determine when to implement restrictions include current and predicted weather, fuel moisture, fire activity levels, and available firefighting resources. Additional restrictions may be applied as conditions warrant.

Fire restrictions typically remain in effect until significant precipitation is received. Visitors should use extra caution when recreating on all public lands during fire season.
