The last fire restrictions have been lifted in Northwest Colorado, by the BLM and Routt National Forest. That means there are no more fire restrictions in the city of Steamboat Springs and unincorporated Routt County, and also in Moffat County. The recent rain has allowed the Ryan and Silver Creek wildfires to transition back to local U.S. Forest Service control. Wet weather will continue through tonight.

It is National Fire Prevention Week. Steamboat Fire Captain Michael Arce, and Firefighter Paramedic Marnie Smith say to, “Look, listen, and learn,” and to be aware because fire can happen anywhere. Today’s focus is on Cooking Safety.

They add to look for places fire can start, listen for the sound of a smoke alarm and always know two ways to get out of a room.

Moffat County High School may be getting a new marquee at the base of the hill where the school sits on Finley Lane. It could cost between $30,000 and $40,000 dollars. St. John’s Greek Orthodox Church has started the fundraising efforts with a check for $600, donated to the high school.

The Pumpkin Patch and Fall Festival has been scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 20. It will be at the Wyman Living History Museum. There will be activities for all ages.
