Kaibab and Prescott National Forests

Will Implement Fire Restrictions June 8

WILLIAMS, Ariz. – Officials with the Kaibab and Prescott National Forests will implement fire restrictions Wednesday, June 8 at 8:00 a.m. due to high fire danger. These restrictions are deemed necessary to protect public health and safety and prevent human-caused wildfire starts. On the Kaibab NF, the fire restrictions cover the Williams and Tusayan ranger districts only; the North Kaibab Ranger District remains in moderate fire danger and will not implement restrictions at this time.
Under the fire restrictions fires, campfires, charcoal, coal and wood stoves are allowed in developed campgrounds only. In addition, campfires are not allowed at the designated dispersed camp sites within the Prescott Basin on the Prescott National Forest. Metal posts identify designated dispersed sites with a number. 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.
Please remember the following campfire safety:
• Avoid making a campfire on windy days especially when a Red Flag Warning is in effect.
• Make a fire only if you have a shovel and sufficient water to put it out. Never leave your campfire unattended.
• To make sure your campfire is out, drown with water and stir with dirt, making sure all burned materials are extinguished. Feel with your hand to make sure it is out cold.
The fire restrictions will remain in place until the forests receive significant precipitation. Violation of the prohibitions is punishable by a fine of not more than $5,000, imprisonment for not more than six months, or both. Fireworks are always prohibited on National Forest land.
For additional information on fire restrictions on the Kaibab, call (928) 635-5653 or (928) 635-8311 and on the Prescott, call (928) 777-5799 or (928) 443-8000.
