While Routt County currently has a Stage 2 fire ban in place, which bans all fires, the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest has just a Stage 1 ban, which allows for fires in developed campgrounds with a fire ring.
9:23 p.m. Steamboat officers responded to six different fireworks complaints Saturday evening, with this one being near the 2600 block of Cross Timbers Trail in Steamboat. Stage 2 fire restrictions ban the use of fireworks in Routt County, and fireworks are never allowed within national forest land.
