Yavapai County has lowered to Stage One fire restrictions. Yavapai County Board of Supervisors Chairman Craig Brown made the decision Monday. Stage one restrictions means no campfires unless in a controlled recreation site. No smoking, except in a building, developed recreation site or stopped in an outdoor area at least three feet barren or cleared of anything flammable. Also no operating or using equipment with an internal or external combustion engine without a spark. Brown says the county will remain in Stage One for now, but will monitor conditions.
