Eagle County issues red flag warning for Tuesday due to temps, high winds
A red flag fire warning has been issued for Oct. 1 from noon to 7 p.m. in areas of Eagle County at elevations below 9,000 feet.
Red flag warnings are issued when a combination of fuel moisture, temperature, wind and other conditions combine to create an increased threat of wildfire.
With the red flag warning comes imposition of Stage 1 fire restrictions for all areas of unincorporated Eagle County. That doesn’t include federal lands.
Under those restrictions, the following are banned:
- All personal use of fireworks
- Any fire not in a permanent fire pit, ring or grate on public or private land
- No explosive targets or incendiary (tracer) ammunition. Both are always banned on federal land.
