The Utah Department of Natural Resources announced on Thursday that hot and dry temperatures are predicted for the first of June and that also marks the start of the closed fire season in Utah. According to the DNR, an abundant amount of fine, flashy fuels have grown tall and thick in many places, already creating extreme wildland fire conditions. “It’s crucial we remain vigilant and keep wildfire risk at the top of our minds this year. So, let’s all do our part and exercise good Fire Sense and keep Utah wildfire-free,” says Kayli Guild with the Utah Division of Forestry, Fire & State Lands. Remember, sparks can be thrown from vehicles and trailers that are not properly maintained, and a vehicle can cause roadside fires without the driver’s knowledge. Remember to completely extinguish your campfires. When target shooting, use safe ammunition and targets. The closed fire season statewide will run June 1st through October 31st.
