Arapahoe, Boulder and Jefferson counties implemented restrictions Tuesday in unincorporated parts of their counties, and Denver banned fires in its mountain parks.
Larimer County officials haven't issued a fire ban yet but are urging people to use caution with fires, slash pile burns and cigarette butts.
There are also no fire restrictions in El Paso County right now.
Denver officials say they're trying to prevent any human-caused wildfires that could divert valuable resources from fighting other blazes.
