Park City Enacts Fire Ban Effective July 20

Park City, Utah - Effective July 20, 2023, any open fires, including fireworks, are prohibited within Park City limits.  

At their regular meeting on July 13, the Park City Council, in consultation with the City’s Fire Marshall, Park City Fire Department, Park City Police, and the City’s Emergency Manager, voted to enact a prohibition on open fires – including fireworks, campfires, slash piles, and wood-burning fire pits. Use of City-permitted fire pits, barbeques, or propane heat sources are not impacted under the ban. 

“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 City Fire Marshall Cherie Wellmon. “This action is based on thorough review of risks to the community.”
