Due to weather condition changes, federal fire restrictions will be lifted on Tuesday, September 7 for Southern Nevada lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and U.S. Forest Service.
All fire restrictions are being lifted except:
• No campfires within one mile of homes in Kyle and Lee Canyons, Deer Creek, Cold Creek, Mountain Springs and Trout Canyon until November 15. While current fire danger is no longer extreme, public land users still need to extinguish campfires and be responsible with smoking materials as there is still potential for wildland fires.

Fireworks are never allowed on public land. From January 1, 2004 to August 31, 2004 the interagency wildland firefighters responded to 167 fires which burned about 11,600 acres in Southern Nevada.
