BLM Rescinded Fire Restrictions in Battle Mountain

By TheNevadaGlobeStaff, October 13, 2022 7:50 am

BATTLE MOUNTAIN, Nevada (775 Times, NV Globe) – Fire restrictions in the Battle Mountain region have been revoked by the Bureau of Land Management.

The removal of limitations became effective at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday and were canceled as a result of reduced daylight hours and lower temperatures across the district.

While prohibitions on public lands are no longer in effect, the BLM encourages individuals to still follow fire safety precautions such as making sure all campfires are extinguished.

Other reminders, according to the BLM, include:

  • Target shooting – the use of steel-core ammunition can greatly increase the chance of a wildfire.
  • The use of incendiary or tracer rounds while recreational shooting is always prohibited.
  • Riding motorcycles/ATVs without a spark arrester and careless smoking can all cause unwanted wildland fires.
  • Firewood cutters must have a chainsaw with a functioning, approved spark arrester screen on the exhaust.
  • The use of propane stoves versus campfires and charcoal grill fires is still preferred in dry conditions.
  • Always avoid driving or parking on dry grass.
  • Open burning on private land still requires a permit from local fire departments.
