Fireworks and Fire Restrictions

fire alert

In conjunction with the Mayor’s office, City of Pueblo Fire Chief Barb Huber has announced that the city is now in Stage 1 Fire Restrictions.

What this means to our citizens is that fire conditions have worsened to the level that the sale of and use of consumer fireworks is prohibited while Stage 1 restrictions are in effect.

“Making this determination is not taken lightly, but in the interest of public safety, fireworks will not be part of this year’s Independence Day holiday,” states Fire Chief Huber. “We ask our citizens to consider all of our current extraordinary circumstances, including the continued spread of the coronavirus, while making plans this summer.”

The activation of fire restrictions within city limits mirrors the restrictions already in place in the rest of Pueblo County.

Fire conditions will be continually reevaluated throughout the summer and may be lifted if they improve significantly.
