Summit County downgraded its fire restrictions to Stage 1 on Tuesday morning. 

The Summit County Board of County Commissioners voted on the restrictions during a special session, the Summit Daily reported early Tuesday.

Fireworks and open campfires are still banned. 

Building, maintaining, attending or using a fire in a permanent fire pit or fire grate within a developed recreation space is allowed again. Portable stoves, gas lanterns, jellied petroleum, pressurized liquid fuel or a fully enclosed stove with a ¼-inch spark screen is also permitted. 

Stage 2 fire restrictions were set more than a month ago on June 28.
