no firesFire Season Information - Learn What's Legal in Each Restriction Level
Due to the geographic makeup of our district, widlfire is always a big concern. With Summer upon us, the threat of wildfire is much greater. Warm and windy days can quickly lower the fuel moisture content of trees and grasses, making them susceptible to ignition. 

Currently, the Foothills Fire district is under no restrictions from the JeffCo Sheriff's office. Please continue to check back for updates and/or changes.

The Jefferson County Sheriff's department has developed information sheets that contain language, definitions and photographs of items that are restricted in either a Stage 1 (Fire Restriction) or Stage 2 (Fire Ban). To better understand what is considered a legal burn, (including fire pits, campfires, etc.) see the links below for more details:
