What with recent precipitation, such as it was, and the drop in temperatures, Colorado Springs Fire Marshal Brett Lacey says the city has lifted fire restrictions due to reduced local wildfire danger.

"We have had an active fire season this fall," he says in a release, "but weather conditions are improving and restrictions can be lifted."

The city says even though restrictions are over, everyone is asked to take precautions to prevent wildfires when outdoors. "We ask that parents remain especially cognizant of their children's activities," the release says. "Immediately call 911 when smoke or flames are spotted."

Residents are urged to reduce their fire danger through landscaping strategies. Wildfire hazard ratings for individual addresses can be found here.
