Firework ban under consideration in Summit County as fire danger hits ‘very high’

SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah — Fire danger in Summit County moved to very high yesterday, the second-highest rating on the fire danger scale.

According to Utah Fire Info, a very high designation means that fires can start easily from all causes, and can spread rapidly and increase quickly in intensity immediately after ignition. Spot fires starting new fires is a constant danger.

The fire danger level in Summit County has increased rapidly in recent weeks, previously moving from moderate to high on July 2.

According to an alert from Summit County, Fire Warden Bryce Boyer will discuss implementing Stage 1 Fire Restrictions, which include a firework ban,  at the July 10 Summit County Council meeting.
