A Coal Creek Firefighter participates in extinguishing an illegal Campfire near Gross Reservoir

Coal Creek Fire Rescue extinguished an illegal Campfire near Gross Reservoir this weekend, where fines for illegal campfires are in excess of $500.

There are NO campsites on public land within the Coal Creek Canyon Fire Protection District where campfires are permissible during Fire Restrictions.

Our thanks to our residents and visitors who have been spreading the word and promptly reporting illegal campfire activity by calling 911.

Visitors to public lands such as those surrounding Gross Reservoir pass multiple Fire Ban signs and these areas are patrolled daily.
