Open Fire Restrictions
Effective immediately, Provo Fire & Rescue has issued an open fire restriction for the foothills on the east bench and all areas of the Provo City watershed including South Fork. These restrictions are implemented due to the high fuel levels in the foothills and the decreasing fuel moisture content.
Fires are restricted to established fire pits in improved parks and campgrounds. Open fires, except in designated fire pits in improved parks and campgrounds, are prohibited in Rock Canyon, Slate Canyon, all foothills along the eastern border of the city, and in the Provo City watershed in South Fork. All restricted areas have been posted. Violations of this restriction will be prosecuted as a Class B Misdemeanor.
