Effective Aug. 9, 2017, the Arapahoe County Sheriff rescinded the open burning ban that had been in effect for unincorporated areas of Arapahoe County east of Gun Club Road since July 6, 2017. 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 July 27.
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. Those considering open burns should check with their local fire department for district specific permits related to burning.
