Stage 2 fire restrictions continue
Stage 2 fire restrictions continue to prohibit open burning of any kind in Douglas County, as well as the sale and personal use of all fireworks. In addition, Stage 2 also prohibits the use of fires in chimineas and other portable fireplaces or patio fire pits, as well as campfires at developed campgrounds or picnic areas. The only allowable activity during Stage 2 is cooking on gas- or liquid-fueled stoves or grills, the residential use of charcoal grill fires or fires contained within fireplaces and wood-burning stoves within buildings.
