  1. Open fires of any kind.
  2. Charcoal cooking.
  3. Discharging or use of any fireworks, tracer ammunition, or other pyrotechnic devices, including sky lanterns.
  4. Cutting, welding, grinding of metals in areas of dry vegetation.
  5. Operating a motorcycle, UTV, ATV, or other small internal combustion engine without an approved and working spark arrestor.

The following person(s) are exempt 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.
