Open fires, fireworks prohibited in Park City effective July 20

PARK CITY, Utah — Open fires, including fireworks, will be prohibited in Park City, effective July 20.

This fire ban was enacted following a vote from the Park City Council at its regular meeting on Thursday, July 13. The council worked in consultation with the Park City Fire Marshall, Fire Department, Police, and the Emergency Manager. 

The ban prohibits open fires, including fireworks, campfires, slash piles, and wood-burning fire pits. However, the ban will not impact the use of City-permitted fire pits, barbeques, or propane heat sources. 

“Despite our wet winter, the fire conditions in our community have necessitated that the City take action to try and prevent wildfires throughout the remainder of the season,” said Cherie Wellmon, Park City fire marshal. “This action is based on thorough review of risks to the community.”
