Reno, NV. September 7, 2023 – The Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District will lift fire restrictions effective Friday, September 8 as it pertains to outdoor recreational and cooking fires only.
The use of recreational appliances including charcoal briquettes and outdoor wood fires is now permissible if they are confined to outdoor fireplaces and fire pits. Wood pellet grills remain permissible.
Certain fire restrictions remain in place:
“With the recent rainfall and as cooler temps begin to take hold and humidity increases, we are lifting some fire restrictions in the Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District,” said Fire Chief Charles Moore. “Never leave an open flame unattended, always have a water source, shovel or fire extinguisher near the fire, and make sure the fire is thoroughly extinguished when no longer in use.”
The Truckee Meadows Fire Protection District serves unincorporated Washoe County, except for the Incline Village area which is served by the North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District.
