The Oaks Fire Restriction Lifted

September 5, 2023

Fire Restriction Order Lifted

The fire restriction placed on July 27, 2023 (see below) has been terminated effective September 5, 2023.

Although the restriction has been lifted, the vegetation in the Oaks area is dry and the risk of wildfire still exists.  We ask all recreationalists to make sure their fires and charcoals are completely extinguished with copious amounts of water before leaving them. 

Any wildfires that start from a campfire or charcoal cooking is the liability of the recreationalist.

Fire Restriction Order

Due to current and forecasted weather conditions coupled with the dry vegetation in the Spanish Fork City Reservoir, Recreation, and Campground areas, the Fire and EMS Chief has determined that measures must be taken to prevent the ignition of wildland fires.  The following acts are prohibited in the areas described until rescinded by the Spanish Fork Fire and EMS Chief.

  1. Open fires of any kind.

  2. Charcoal cooking.

  3. Operating a motorcycle, UTV, ATV, or other small internal combustion engine without an approved and working spark arrestor.

The following person(s) are exempted from the above prohibitions:

  1. Person(s) with a waiver issued by the Spanish Fork City Fire Marshal, specifically authorizing a specified act at a specific location.  A waiver does not relieve the person(s) of liability if a fire does occur.

  2. Any on-duty firefighter in the performance of an official duty.

Effective Date: 12 a.m., 27th day of July 2023

Termination Date: 9 a.m., 5th day of September 2023
