Fires across are state remind us all that it only takes a couple hot days to change Colorado’s fire danger status. That’s why the Town of Castle Rock today implemented Stage 1 fire restrictions.

Acting on authority granted by Town Council, Town Manager Dave Corliss and Fire and Rescue Chief Art Morales implemented the restrictions.

Stage 1 restrictions prohibit open burning, except on developed, private property.

However, fireplaces within buildings are allowed. Also allowed under the restrictions are:
• Fires within liquid-fueled or gas stoves
• Charcoal grill fires within developed residential or commercial areas and fires within wood-burning stoves
• Chimineas, fire pits and charcoal smokers on private property away from combustibles
• Professional fireworks displays (Castle Rock only allows private fireworks on July 4)
• Fire suppression or Fire Department training fires
• Tiki torches and small recreational fires at developed picnic or campground sites. (Flames cannot exceed 4 feet in length and must be supervised by a responsible person who is at least 21 years old.)

The Fire Chief or Town Manager can impose higher-level Stage 2 restrictions if conditions warrant. Check for any updates regarding the current restriction level. Learn more about restrictions at

People found to be in violation of the Town’s fire restrictions are subject to punishment of a $1,000 fine, 180 days in jail or both.

Inquiries regarding the current status of fire restrictions in Town should be directed to the Fire Chief’s Office, 303-660-1066.
