Stage 2 Fire Ban
Summit County Moves into Stage 2 Fire Ban
Stage 2 of the fire ban prohibits open burning. Disposing of burning objects outdoors, selling fireworks, operating a chainsaw without an approved spark arrester, welding or operating a torch with open flame, and inflating or propelling hot air balloons.
Exemptions include liquid-fueled or gas-fueled stoves, fireplaces contained within buildings, and commercial, professional and municipal fireworks displays where specific written approval has been granted by the Summit County Sheriff.
The 4th of July fireworks for the town of Frisco are still going to take place as normal thankfully!
Unfortunately Breckenridge, Dillon, and Copper Mountain have put a hold on there fireworks as of right now. They only place to see fireworks as of right now in Summit County is Frisco. Frisco is able to have fireworks still because they are released over the lake so the risk is minimal compared to the resorts and other towns.
