Welcome to the Los Pinos Fire District Website
The Los Pinos Fire Protection District provides fire suppression and emergency medical services to a 325 square mile area of Southwest Colorado. The Fire District encompasses portions of LaPlata and Archulata Counties, and includes the communities of Oxford, Tiffany, Allison, Arboles, and the Town of Ignacio. A substantial portion of the District consists of Southern Ute Tribal Lands, Bureau of Land Management property, territory belonging to the U.S. Forest Service, Division of Wildlife areas, and land owned by the State of Colorado.
Due to the current high temperatures, dry fuel conditions and the occurrence of recent wildland fires, Stage 1 fire restrictions have been implemented for all trust lands throughout the Southern Ute Indian Reservation. Everyone on reservation land is asked to be very cautious and use common sense with fire this time of year.
Stage 1 Fire Restrictions prohibits acts for the general public, commercial operators and industrial oil and gas operators performing work on the Southern Ute Reservation.
A full copy of the restrictions can be found on the "FIRE RESTRICTIONS" page.
The restrictions will become effective on June 23, 2014 and will remain until conditions improve.
