Fire restrictions to be lifted on national forests

Campfire and smoking restrictions will be lifted on the Coconino, Kaibab, Prescott and Apache-Sitgreaves national forests beginning Friday at 8 a.m.

Recent rains along with higher humidity and increased fuel moistures have lowered fire danger on the forest, thus decreasing the risk of major wildfires.

“It’s everyone’s responsibility to practice fire safety and prevent human-caused fires,” Coconino Fire Staff Officer Russ Copp stated in a press release. "Although campfires and smoking will be allowed throughout the forest, people should never leave a campfire unattended. Campers should make sure they pack a shovel and about five to six gallons of water to extinguish their campfire completely before leaving."

“Lifting the restrictions does not mean people can be careless with fire," Kaibab Fire Staff Officer Doug Ottosen stated. "Although campfires and smoking will be allowed throughout the forest, people should ensure that they properly extinguish their campfires, never leave a campfire unattended and use ashtrays to dispose of their cigarettes.”


Forest visitors are also reminded that campfire restrictions may vary on different national forests. Please call the nearest land management office or (877) 864-6985 for current information or visit the Public Lands website to stay informed.
