Burn Ban Lifted in Montezuma County

Creative Commons

The Montezuma County commissioners have suspended the fire ban. Sheriff Steve Nowlin told the board all the fire chiefs were in favor of lifting the ban because of recent moisture.

Residents are still encouraged to be cautious with open fires and are reminded to call Cortez Dispatch at 970-565-8441 before burning.
