Fires Prohibited on Forest

Fire restrictions remain in effect on the Coconino National
Forest. Under these restrictions, fires, campfires, charcoal, coal or 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. Fireworks are always prohibited on National
Forest land.

During daily patrols, forest personnel have discovered a number of
abandoned campfires; this is in violation of the forest order. Violation of
the prohibitions is punishable by a fine of not more than $5,000,
imprisonment for not more than six months, or both.  Visitors are urged to
maintain vigilance against the spread of fire.

The fire restrictions will stay in place until the forest receives
significant precipitation. For additional information on fire restrictions
