RENO, Nev. (AP) — State and federal officials in Nevada have lifted fire restrictions that have been in place since the middle of June on most state and U.S. lands in western Nevada.

The restrictions expired at 12:01 a.m. Friday on lands managed by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, the Carson and Bridgeport ranger districts of the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest and the Nevada Division of Forestry's Sierra Fire Protection District.

Agency officers say the increased fuel moisture levels and cooler evening temperatures make it possible to lift the restrictions. That includes state park land at Lake Tahoe, Washoe Lake and the Carson River Ranches portion of Ft. Churchill and Dayton.

The U.S. Forest Service still requires permits for campfires in the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest.
