A small fire was caused by illegal tracer ammunition on the Pawnee National Grassland in Weld County over the weekend.

Local fire crews were able to put out the blaze. The recreational shooters responsible for the fire were cited and fined $525. Tracer rounds and other incendiary ammunition are illegal under the Federal Code of Regulations. This violation carries a $525 to $5,000 fine.

Tracers are built with a small pyrotechnic charge in their base and are able to start fires. So far this year, nearly a dozen fires have been caused by “irresponsible” shooters.

Todd Harding did a story 2 weeks ago about bullet caused fires on the Pawnee National Grassland.
