FIRE RESTRICTIONS FOR NORTHEAST NEVADA END OCTOBER 5, 2006

October 4, 2006 – Elko, Nev. – Due to decreased fire danger conditions in northeast Nevada, area land managers announced that fire restrictions on public lands will be lifted at 12:01 a.m. on Thursday, October 5, 2006.
Fire restrictions will be lifted from public lands administered by the Bureau of Land Management's Elko Field Office; the US Forest Service Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest Mountain City, Jarbidge, and Ruby Mountains Ranger Districts; the US Fish & Wildlife Service Ruby Lake National Wildlife Refuge; and the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) Eastern Nevada Agency and Shoshone-Paiute Duck Valley Tribe within the Humboldt, Pershing, Lander, Eureka, Elko, Esmeralda, and Nye County Fire Protection Districts and portions of Washoe, Lyon, Churchill, and White Pine Counties
Recent rains and cooler temperatures have lessened the fire danger to a point where fire restrictions are no longer needed. However, area land managers remind the public that it is still very important to use care with fire and take adequate precautions to prevent the escape of campfires. Visitors to public lands are encouraged to carry an axe, shovel, 1-5 gallons of water, and a fire extinguisher.
