Arizona forest restricting campfires beginning Thursday

PHOENIX — Campfires will be restricted to developed campgrounds in the Apache-Sitgreaves Forest beginning Thursday.

Wood stoves, pressurized liquid gas stoves, lanterns and heaters that can be turned off are also permitted in developed campgrounds.

A developed campground does not include campfire rings built inside the forest.

Other forests may soon put similar restrictions in place.
