The Prescott National Forest has reopened and lowered its fire restrictions to Stage Two. The decision was made to coordinate with the Coconino and Kaibab national forests, who did the same thing Tuesday. Stage Two fire restrictions means no campfires or use of charcoal, coal, smudge pots and wood stoves. Stoves or grills used by propane or other liquid petroleum can be used however. Smoking must be kept within a enclosed vehicle or building, a developed recreation site, or while stopped in an area at least three feet in diameter that is barren or cleared of anything flammable. Use of a chainsaw, torch or welder is also prohibited between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. Developed recreation sites will be reopened on the Verde Ranger District Thursday morning at 8 a.m. and developed family and group campgrounds on the Bradshaw Ranger District will reopen Friday at noon.
