Leaving a campfire unattended in a forested or grassland area can now elicit a $750 fine and a maximum sentence of 6 months imprisonment per a new Colorado law, one of a handful that went into effect July 1.

The new law states: "Any person who starts or maintains a campfire commits the offense of leaving a campfire unattended if he or she knowingly or recklessly:

  • Fails to reasonably attend the campfire at all times; or
  • Fails to thoroughly extinguish the campfire before leaving the site."

People who leave them unattended anywhere else in the state can be fined up to $50.
