GOSHEN COUNTY – With the holiday weekend fast approaching, the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission has enacted a partial fire ban on commission-owned land within the boundaries of Goshen County, according to a June 29 release.
The ban went into effect Tuesday, the release said.
Campfires are prohibited on all WGFC properties, whether owned or managed by the commission, in the county. This includes, but is not limited to, Rawhide, Springer, Mac’s 40 Acres and Table Mountain wildlife habitat management areas.
Also included in the ban are Bump Sullivan, Packers Lake, Barnes Bridge, Torrington and Whalen Diversion public access areas.
Fireworks are banned on WGFC lands at all times.
The use of stand-alone grills is still permitted under the ban. The commission recommends anyone using a grill have an appropriate fire extinguisher within reach.
