Log Hill Volunteer Fire Department





Welcome to the home of the Log Hill Volunteer Fire Department

Log Hill Mesa, Ouray County, Colorado




Current Fire Restrictions:

There are currently no county-wide fire restrictions in Ouray County.

(Check with your Home Owner's Association to verify burning restrictions in your subdivision. Please call the Montrose Regional Dispatch Center at 252-4020 and inform the Dispatch Center of any controlled burns or fires you plan to have on your property.)



Recently at 10:15 PM, Log Hill Fire was dispatched to a report of visible flames along County Road 1A. While we were responding, a medical first responder who lives in the area found out the property owner was just having a bonfire.  This is campfire season, so we ask that if you are burning outside that you please report all fires to Montrose Regional Dispatch Center and Ouray County Sheriff's Office. This will help prevent emergency responses to your house and help keep all of us safer. Log Hill Fire does not want to discourage you having fun around a campfire, we just want to reduce the number of false alarms which mean a response by volunteer firefighters and Sheriff Deputies.



In it together: Experts, area REALTORS unite to cut fire risks

Piñon-juniper clustered close around the winding driveway, leading to a nice, tucked-away wooden home. Like other properties in Log Hill Village, this one came with a stunning view and put its occupants up close with nature’s glory.

But, in the wrong conditions, the breathtaking vista becomes a hazard: Nature burns, and wildland fire can lead to catastrophic loss.
