There is a lot of information floating around today in Utah about new fire restrictions. Pretty much without exception, campfires are now banned in the Uintas.
Completely understandable given how dry it is up there - but many of us have called the ranger stations today to confirm the other part of the ban - camp stoves. Essentially, they are saying any and all flames are banned until further notice.
I personally called the Kamas Ranger station today, and they confirmed with me. She also said to "call back tomorrow, we're hoping to remove the ban on camp stoves." Which to me, makes it sound like someone made a mistake.
Has anyone heard of this type of universal ban before? I can't recall anytime I've heard of restrictions this extreme.
