PARK CITY, Utah, June 16, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — Park City officials announced Wednesday that a fire ban is now in effect.

“Fireworks, explosive devices, open fires, and discharge of firearms are all prohibited within City limits until further notice,” said a tweet from Park City Municipal.

“There are no holiday exceptions.”

The ban covers both Independence Day, on July 4, and Pioneer Day, on July 24.
