The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office has lifted its Stage II fire ban and returned to Stage I fire restrictions in the county.
The less-stringent restrictions were reinstated because of lower temperatures and higher humidity that have reduced wildfire risk. The change was made starting Friday morning.
People are prohibited from:
• Building, maintaining, attending or using any fire or recreational campfire, except within a permanently constructed fire grate in a developed park, campground, private residence or picnic area.
