Northern Arizona Jumps Back Into Stage One Fire Restrictions Today

The Coconino, Kaibab and Prescott national forests are heading back into Stage One fire restrictions today. Under the restrictions, fires, campfires, charcoal, coal and wood stoves are prohibited, except within a developed recreation site. Smoking is also prohibited, except within an enclosed vehicle, building or a developed recreation site. Using a device that is solely fueled by liquid petroleum or LPG fuels that can be turned on and off is allowed in areas that are barren or cleared of all overhead and surrounding flammable materials within three feet of the device. Fire restrictions are implemented to help prevent unwanted, human-caused fires and to limit the exposure of visitors during periods of potentially dangerous fire conditions. With no significant moisture predicted in the long term forecast, additional restrictions may be applied at any time conditions warrant which could include Stage 2 fire restrictions and additional closure areas as needed. Coconino County, the cities of Flagstaff and Williams, Sedona and the Quad Cities will all restart Stage One restrictions today.
