Prowers County Fire Ban Lifted

Effective August 18, 2011 the Prowers County Sheriff, as the County Fire Marshall, and in conjunction with the Prowers County Board of Commissioners, hereby lifts the Fire Ban in all unincorporated areas of Prowers County.  

We greatly appreciate the public’s partnership and assistance in keeping the fire hazard to a minimum and thereby our County a safer place this past Spring and Summer.

Sheriff Jim Faull conferred with the Prowers County Commissioners during their Thursday meeting, and decided in light of the precipitation levels in the county over the past six or seven weeks, to lift the fire ban which was enacted in late June.  Several large scale fires were fought in southeast Colorado during the late spring and early summer due to lack of rainfall over dry grasslands and prairie.
