    (KUTV) — "Extreme drought conditions" have prompted authorities to elevate fire restrictions throughout the Moab-Monticello Ranger District, the district said in a press release.

    No open burning will be allowed in any area, including charcoal briquettes and any stoves using wood for fuel, the release states. Stoves using liquid fuel with on/off switches are allowed for cooking.

    "Please use extreme caution when recreating on forest lands," authorities warned.
