Colorado Springs enacts burn restrictions

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- As of Friday, a burn restriction has been implemented in Colorado Springs as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Colorado Springs Fire Department issued a notice saying the restrictions follow Gov. Jared Polis' recommendations as local resources are strained by fighting coronavirus.

Included in the restrictions are: no outdoor recreational fires, no outdoor smoking in city-owned parks and open spaces, no small internal combustion engines without a functioning spark arrestor, and obviously no fireworks or open burning of trash.

Fire pits, barbecue grills, and smoking in your own backyard are still OK. See this link for more information.

There isn't an end date for the restrictions at this time.

  1. They used to enact fire bans during times of high fire danger, you know, to prevent fires.

    Now they enact fire bans to keep the citizens in check.
    .
    OK, gotcha. Yep, time to start revolting!

  2. Why not have CSFD show us the increased workload they have endured due to COVID 19 to support this restriction!

  3. They are stripping us of all our rights and freedoms, little by little, under the disguise of Public safety, and because of the panic and fear of covid, we are letting them. I remember when this was a free country.
