Fire restrictions are being cut back in some Colorado forests because of recent rains.

Several counties, including Jefferson, Lake and Pueblo, have ended their complete bans, and the U.S. Forest Service has eased fire restrictions at many Colorado campgrounds.

Fires will be allowed in developed campgrounds in the Pikes Peak, South Platte, South Park and San Carlos ranger districts. The Forest Service also lifted all fire restrictions in the Salida and Leadville ranger districts.
