Fire restrictions are in place in Mesa County and to help residents learn more about how the restrictions affect them personally a map has been created to show where and what level of restrictions are currently in place.

The map is hosted by the Mesa County Sheriff's Office and allows people to view restriction anywhere in the county including their home address.

To introduce people to fire restrictions and what can be done to help prevent accidental fires they created a humorous informative video titled 'May the Forest Be With You.'

The map is updated as restrictions change and while most of Mesa County is under level one restrictions, there are still a few places that don't have restrictions, at least yet. That doesn't mean you should be any less cautious, though.
