Fire restrictions still apply to most of northern Utah
SALT LAKE CITY – Fire restrictions remain in place for much of northern Utah.
However, many of these restrictions were lifted in the central and southern parts of Utah over the course of Labor Day weekend.
According to utahfireinfo.gov, bonfires are restricted in the northern part of the state. Cache, Box Elder, Weber, and Rich County are all in Tier II fire restrictions. Level II means no open fire of any kind.
Ten counties in level 1
Ten counties, including Davis, Salt Lake, and Utah, are in Level 1 of the fire restrictions. Level I basically means that there are no open fires, except in campsites, picnic areas, or fixed fire pits. At this stage, smoking is restricted to an enclosed area. In addition, no fireworks are allowed. Cutting metal and using an ATV are also prohibited.
Morgan, Tooele, Summit, Daggett, Wasatch, Duchesne, and Uintah counties are also in Level 1.

The following counties do not currently have fire restrictions: Juab, Millard, Sanpete, Sevier, Piute, Wayne, Carbon, Emery, Grand, San Juan, Beaver, Iron, Washington, Garfield, and Kane.
Despite the easing of restrictions in certain parts of the state, people are not currently able to set off fireworks anywhere in Utah.
Fireworks are never allowed in or in national parks.
