DURANGO — La Plata County officials and the Southern Ute Indian Tribe are setting restrictions in southwest Colorado to prevent wildfires.

The restrictions that begin Wednesday include using permanent fire rings or grates for campfires in campgrounds, limits on outdoor smoking and requirements that vehicles have spark-arresters in areas at risk.

According to the Durango Herald, the agencies are taking action because of a half-dozen wildfires burning across Colorado.
