FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. —Stage 2 fire restrictions, will begin at 8 a.m., Thursday, June 22, across Coconino County. Fire restrictions are to help protect public health by reducing the number of human-caused wildfires.
The County has been in Stage 1 fire restrictions since June 15. The County is enacting Stage 2 restrictions due to forecasted weather and very high fire danger. Restrictions are in coordination with Coconino National Forest and the Arizona Department of Fire and Forestry Management.
The following restrictions apply on County public lands, as well as private lands in the unincorporated areas of the County. During Stage 2, the only combustion open fire and campfire allowed are listed below:
Unless allowed by an exception above, in addition to stage one common prohibited activities (including open fire, campfires, fireworks, open smoking and use of exploding targets and tracer round ammunition), prohibitions now include all open fire, campfires, open smoking, outdoor mechanical and industrial operations such as welding and use of acetylene, and operating motorized vehicles off designated trails and roads.
Residents and visitors are asked to use their best judgment when considering whether to engage in any activity that could spark a fire. Residents and visitors are reminded that they can be held legally responsible for causing any wildfire.
