Effective at 6:00 p.m. today, June 29, 2017, the Jefferson County Sheriff will implement temporary Stage 1 Fire Restrictions for portions of Jefferson County. The restrictions apply to the areas west of Highway 93, west of C-470, and south and west of the intersection of CO 121 (Wadsworth) and C-470 to the Platte River.
