TWIN FALLS — With cooler temperatures arriving, stage-one fire restrictions will be lifted at 12:01 a.m. Saturday for all of south-central Idaho on private, state and federal lands.

Fire managers remind the public that the potential for wildfire still exists. Even with fire restrictions being lifted, the accidental start of a wildfire can still be devastating.

Do your part to keep the Magic Valley safe from wildfire. Follow these tips:

  • Never leave a campfire unattended.
  • Keep water, dirt and a shovel near your fire at all times.
  • Make sure your fire is dead and cold to the touch before you leave it.
  • Never use fireworks, exploding targets or tracer rounds on or near public land.
