Forest Service closes area due to Fourmile Canyon Fire
The Boulder Ranger District of the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests has temporarily closed all entry on National Forest System lands north from Boulder Canyon (Colorado Highway 119) to South Saint Vrain Canyon (Colorado Highway 7) and east of the Peak to Peak Highway (Colorado Highway 72). Private landowners, members of the media and private contractors (such as those working on private property or for utility maintenance) are exempt from the restriction.
Boulder District Ranger Christine Walsh said, “This closure is necessary to protect public safety in close proximity to the Four Mile Canyon Fire. The fire is behaving very erratically at times; as winds and weather conditions shift the fire could move in a new direction at a moment’s notice.”
Fire danger is currently rated “very high” in Boulder County. Although fire restrictions are not in effect, visitors to other areas of the national forest are asked to be extremely careful with campfires to avoid further wildfire ignitions. If you use a fire, never leave campfires unattended, even for a few minutes. Pour on plenty of water and stir it into the coals until all materials are cool to the touch with your bare hand.
