The Coconino and Prescott national forests, along with the City of Flagstaff and Yavapai and Coconino counties, will be moving to Stage Two fire restrictions on Friday at 8 a.m. Officials say due to warmer weather conditions, increased fire dangers and public safety, the time is now to go into the next level of restrictions. Stage One restrictions have been in effect since May 14th. Stage Two restrictions means any fires will be prohibited inside or outside a controlled campground. Smoking will also be prohibited. Between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m., operating a chainsaw or other equipment powered by a gasoline engine won’t be allowed, as well as using an explosive, blasting, welding or operating a torch. Fire restrictions will remain in place until adequate precipitation falls. Violation of the restrictions is punishable by a fine of up to $5,000, six months in jail or both.
