Fire danger downgraded to low

Summit Daily staff report

Steady and much-needed rains in recent days have helped put an end to a protracted dry spell in Summit County that sent fire danger soaring and helped fuel the Peak 2 fire, which scorched more than 80 acres near Breckenridge in early July.

The scare prompted government officials at all levels to impose far-reaching fire bans, which were only recently lifted as fire danger continued to inch down.

On Wednesday, officials downgraded fire danger once more to “low,” citing the continued rainfall.

Despite the low likelihood of fire starting or spreading, fires should not be left unattended and should be extinguished completely before being abandoned.
