Stage One fire restrictions are now in effect around Northern Arizona. Coconino, Kaibab, Prescott, Apache-Sitgreaves and Tonto national forests are in Stage One, along with the cities of Flagstaff, Prescott, Prescott Valley, Chino Valley, Dewey-Humboldt, Sedona and Tusayan. Yavapai, Navajo and Coconino counties and the state trust lands are also under Stage One restrictions. The restriction means, fires, campfires, charcoal, coal and wood stoves are prohibited in open spaces, except within a developed recreation site, or at private residences. Smoking is also prohibited in public places, except within an enclosed vehicle, building or a developed recreation site. Fireworks are always prohibited on all national forest and state lands. Fire restrictions are implemented to help prevent human-caused fires and to limit the exposure of visitors during periods of potentially dangerous fire conditions. Additional restrictions could be forthcoming if conditions warrant.
