Effective immediately, the Arapahoe County Sheriff is rescinding the open burning ban that has been in effect for unincorporated areas of Arapahoe County east of Gun Club Road, and Cherry Creek State Park since Sept. 22, 2015. Current moisture has lowered our wildfire potential. The open burning ban had already been lifted for the City of Centennial and unincorporated Arapahoe County west of Gun Club Road on Oct. 7..
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.
