Arapahoe County Sheriff Rescinds Burn Ban

Burn Ban Status

Effective immediately, the Arapahoe County Sheriff is rescinding the open burning ban that has been in effect for unincorporated Arapahoe County, City of Centennial, and the towns of Deer Trail and Foxfield. Current moisture has lowered our wildfire potential.

The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office advises caution as residents resume using open flame fires. In our area, grasses and other fuels can dry out quickly and pose a threat to rapid fire spread. Please refrain from burning during windy conditions and have a readily available water supply. Those considering open burns should check with their local fire department for district specific permits related to burning.
