Las Vegas - Wildland fire officials will lift seasonal fire restrictions on public lands in Southern Nevada managed by the Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, National Park Service, Nevada Division of Forestry, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and U.S. Forest Service on September 6, 2014.
Spring Mountains National Recreation Area will remain in fire restrictions in some areas until November 15. Those restrictions are as follows: no campfires within one mile of homes in Kyle and Lee Canyons, Deer Creek, Cold Creek and the communities of Trout Canyon and Mountain Springs. These areas are signed advising the public of the restrictions. “We would like to thank the public for their prevention efforts this fire season,” said Mike Haydon, BLM Fire Management Officer.
“We ask that visitors continue to be safe with campfires and other sources of ignition because brush, grass and trees remain dry from the hot summer temperatures.”
