Both, the City of Woodland Park, and Teller County, lifted their Stage 2 fire ban Thursday, July 11, reducing it to a Stage 1 ban.

"After consultation with our Fire Chief, our Emergency Management team, and knowing that Teller County lifted their Stage 2 Fire Ban earlier today, I am withdrawing Emergency Regulation No. 1, Series 2013 dated June 20, 2013, effective 1:45 PM, Thursday, July 11, 2013 for the City of Woodland Park," says Woodland Park City Manager Dave Buttery.

"Specifically, but not completely, this will allow fires in prepared fire pits and the use of charcoal grills. Please continue to exercise extreme caution." Buttery said.
