UCR Fire outlook
Upper Colorado River Fire and Aviation Management Unit leaders rated the fire outlook for this summer as average during a media day June 7 at the Rifle Garfield County Airport, based on weather and wildland fire vegetation fuels.
However, an average fire season can mean 200 fires or more. Public lands users are asked to take extra precautions with fires, as 25 of 28 public lands fires by June 6 were human-caused. They also cautioned that citizen-operated drones or unmanned aerial systems are banned in fire zones. Register for emergency alerts at
