(Before It's News)

Fire Restrictions are in place for the entire Cherokee National Forest due to the extremely dry conditions, high fire danger and little chance of rain in the immediate forecast.

Effective today, October 29, 2016, the following fire restrictions are in place for the entire Cherokee National Forest until terminated by the U.S. Forest Service:

o Building, maintaining, attending or using a fire, campfire or charcoal fire outside of developed recreation areas. The use of portable lanterns, stoves or heating equipment that utilize gas or pressurized liquid fuel is allowed.

o Fires at developed recreation areas must be confined to receptacles designed for fire. Metal fire rings and grills are provided in Cherokee National Forest developed recreation areas. Campfires should always be put out and cold to the touch before left for any period of time.
