Coconino, Kaibab National Forests To Re-Enter Stage One Fire Restrictions Friday

The Coconino and Kaibab national forests will head back into Stage One fire restrictions Friday morning. They will join Prescott National Forest, who will also go into fire restrictions again this week. 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.
