BOISE -- With the wildfire danger high in so many areas of Idaho, fire restrictions will be in place beginning next week.

The restrictions are on all Bureau of Land Management and state-managed lands within Ada, Canyon, Payette, and
Washington counties as well as portions of Elmore County that are south of Interstate 84.

Fires, campfires, and stove fires are prohibited except within a designated recreation site or on an owner's own land.

Smoking except within an enclosed vehicle, building or designated recreation site is also prohibited.

The new fire restrictions will go into effect Tuesday.
