Fire Restrictions Are Being Reduced In Northern Arizona Friday Morning

Fire restrictions will either go away, or reduced Friday morning, thanks to recent Monsoon rains. The Coconino and Kaibab national forests, as well as Flagstaff, Sedona and Coconino County are removing restrictions entirely at 6 a.m. However the Prescott National Forest, Grand Canyon and the City of Prescott, along with the Central Arizona Fire and Medical Authority, will go to Stage One restrictions. The Grand Canyon, along with the Prescott and Tonto National Forests, will require campfires always be in a designated fire ring within a maintained campground. Plus gas grills, or stove fires can be used. In Prescott, cooking outdoors is allowed at private residences, no outdoor use of firearms and residential burning will be permitted. The Kaibab National Forest will also lift the closure of Bill Williams Mountain. Fire danger remains high across the forests. Visitors are still asked to remain vigilant and avoid activities that could accidentally cause wildfires, refrain from campfires on dry and windy days and remember that it is always illegal to leave a campfire unattended. Closures unrelated to fire and smoking restrictions remain in effect, including the Raphael Fire around Sycamore Canyon, Mangum Fire on the North Kaibab Ranger District, and areas of the Slate Fire and Backbone Fire.
