Fire Restrictions Begin in National Forests

Parts of the Prescott and Coconino National Forests now limit campfires, smoking, and shooting to help prevent wildfires.

Hot, dry, and windy weather means one thing for Arizona's popular public lands: high risk of wildfire. To prevent blazes before they start, the Prescott National Forest and sections of the Red Rock Ranger District of the Coconino National Forest have enacted Stage 1 fire restrictions, which prohibit or carefully limit campfires, smoking, and shooting guns.
