Pioneer Day Fire Restrictions

Jul 23, 2012

Governor Herbert has issued a warning reminding citizens to use caution and follow fire restrictions closely while celebrating Pioneer Day this year.

Although each city is responsible for its own fireworks restrictions and safety, all areas outside of incorporated areas are still under a full ban on fireworks. The only exceptions include 1 or 2 areas inside Salt Lake County.

Utah residents have been warned that although recent rains and cooler temperatures have reduced fire danger, vegetation dries quickly and caution with fire is still a necessity. Officials say the fireworks restrictions will stay in force throughout Pioneer Day and will remain in effect until conditions warrant otherwise.
