The City of Flagstaff would like to remind our residents and visitors that the Coconino National Forest, Coconino County and the City all have campfire and smoking restrictions in place.
The City of Flagstaff’s restrictions include a ban on all fire pits and other open flame devises (Chimayo) – even those with a spark arrestor are banned.
The use of charcoal grills and other devises which have an on-off switch are still permitted.
City restrictions also ban smoking on all FUTS trails, at Buffalo Park, and on or near the Thorpe and McPhearson Disc Golf Courses.
Coconino County has imposed a ban on open burning in unincorporated areas of the County until extreme fire conditions improve. Included in that ban is the use of fireworks, other pyrotechnic displays, all open fires and campfires (in both developed and undeveloped campgrounds).
Coconino National Forest has also implemented fire & smoking restrictions throughout the forest. Fires, campfires, charcoal, coal and wood stoves are allowed in developed campgrounds only. The restrictions also limit smoking to within enclosed vehicles, buildings, or in developed campgrounds.
Pressurized liquid or gas stoves, lanterns, and heaters that can be turned off are allowed.
We hope everyone enjoys the Memorial Day holiday and helps us keep our communities and forest safe by following all bans and restrictions.
