    Fire bans went into effect for a number of western Colorado counties today.

    All of New Mexicos national forests are currently under level 1 or 2 fire bans as well. Only a matter of time for southern UT.

    When I lived in Moab, I was always happy that there wasn't much around to burn, at least not like my hometown in Colorado (Glenwood Springs). Smoke from any fires in the La Sals would generally go east and not affect town. Then we had the Big Rattle Fire up in the Books...the smoke drifted over Moab many days and left us all gasping for air.

    Southern Arizona has been under Stage II for a couple weeks now. No closure but petroleum stoves only with shutoff valves.
