Rocky Mountain National Park lifts fire ban
ESTES PARK — Rocky Mountain National Park has lifted a total fire ban following recent rains.
The park banned all campfires last month because of the threat of wildfires in Colorado.
The park usually allows campfires in designated fire rings, but the park banned those fires, as well as charcoal grilling, for the first time since September 2010.
Campfires are now permitted in campgrounds, some backcountry campsites and designated picnic areas. The use of disposable or portable charcoal grills, wood fuel camp stoves and gas grills is also being allowed.
