Sheridan County Commissioners voted several weeks ago to enact fire restrictions throughout the county. The action was taken on advice of County Fire Warden Bill Biastoch who indicated that small fuels are drying out despite the fact that the county has seen a very moist summer. County Commissioner Mike Nickel says that some people may not have heard about the restrictions.
What is prohibited by the fire ban?
The open fire ban went into effect at the end of July and county officials don’t expect the bad to be lifted until the snow flies.
