BLM Lifts Fire Restrictions Within Sublette, Lincoln Counties

ROCK SPRINGS– Due to subsiding fire danger, the Bureau of Land Management High Desert District is rescinding the Stage 1 fire restrictions for public lands within the boundaries of Sublette and Lincoln Counties effective October 8, 2018.

The fire restrictions went into effect September 21, 2018 in an effort to protect the public and assist ongoing Roosevelt firefighting operations in the area.

This decision was reached in coordination with the BLM’s county partners. Partnerships and inclusion are vital to managing sustainable, working public lands managed by the BLM.
