DAVENPORT — Heading to Lake Roosevelt to go camping? Officials there say bring a cook stove and leave your firewood at home.

Due to extreme conditions, all fires at Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area will be prohibited from Friday, July 14, until further notice.

The ban is effective at 12:01 a.m. Friday morning, officials said, noting no open flames are permitted.

Even campfires in area-provided fire rings and boxes are prohibited, officials said. Charcoal grills are also prohibited, as are shoreline fires, tiki torches, incense burners, candles, pellet smokers and propane campfires.

Only self-contained propane or gas stoves and lanterns are allowed, officials said.
