List of Arizona agencies with fire restrictions grows

SPRINGERVILLE, Ariz. — The list of agencies enacting fire restrictions in
Arizona is growing.

Coconino County and the State Forestry Division are joining Prescott, Flagstaff
and northern Arizona forests in limiting where people can smoke and build fires,
starting Friday.

The lowest level of fire restrictions go into effect Tuesday in eastern
Arizona’s Apache Sitgreaves National Forest.

Visitors to that forest, as well as the Tonto, Prescott, Coconino and Kaibab
forests can build campfires only in developed campgrounds. Smoking will be
limited to within enclosed vehicles, in buildings and in areas cleared of all
flammable material.

The restrictions don’t apply to part of the Kaibab National Forest north of the
Grand Canyon.

Officials say the potential is high for wildfires, and they’re seeking the
public’s help to prevent the blazes.
