Grand Junction, Colo. (KKCO) --- Even with temperatures reaching nearly triple digits through the Grand Valley, officials have yet to issue a fire ban.
“We have a pre-planned list of indices that we use and we haven't reached those thresholds yet," says BLM Firefighter Russ Long. "So that's something that we could see this summer. Right now we haven't reached those thresholds yet."
Although many residents are tired of the restrictions that have become all-too-familiar in the past few years, officials ask that they stay aware of the weather and are extremely careful with any sort of open flames.
