#SanJuanNF is moving into Stage I Fire Restrictions on June 24, a step down from the current Stage II. With the recent rainfall, fire danger has moderated. Fire managers will continue evaluating fuels and weather predictions/conditions.

Recent rains prompted the decision to scale back the restrictions from Stage 2 to Stage 1, but regional drought conditions mean that fire risk can return quickly once the rains have ceased.

Gusty winds and lighting from storms today bring a secondary threat of new fire starts. Heavy rainfall becomes a threat through the weekend. #cowx #utwx
