Open Fire and Firework Restrictions
June 5, 2015 at 12:00 am
While we have been fortunate to receive quite a bit of rain over the past few weeks, experts are forecasting a dry summer with continued drought conditions. After consulting with Chief Freeman with the Lone Peak Public Safety District, the City Council voted to implement some fire restrictions effective immediately.
The current restrictions prohibit any aerial fireworks or open fires east of Canyon Road. The use of other fireworks and covered fires (i.e. screen covers on fire pits) are allowed. There are currently no other restrictions for the rest of the city; however, the city will continue to discuss potential concerns with the fire chief as the season progresses. Please visit the city’s website or Facebook page throughout the summer for updates on restrictions.
Residents are invited to light aerial fireworks at Mesquite Soccer Park on July 4 and July 24, where fire personnel will be on site.
