County lifts fire restrictions

In coordination with the U.S. Forest Service, Coconino County will lift fire restrictions below the South Rim of the Grand Canyon at 8 a.m., Wednesday, July 11.


Stage Two Restrictions will remain in effect above the North Rim of the Canyon.

Fire restrictions are lifted because the region received significant moisture over the past week and due to continued precipitation in the forecast.

Although much of the region has received rain, fire conditions may still be high in some areas. Residents and visitors are asked to use caution when using equipment or items that can spark a fire. They are also asked to extinguish all campfires, operate ATVS and motorcycles with spark arrestors and to use caution when operating barbeque grills. Residents and visitors are reminded they can be legally responsible for causing wildfires.

The Coconino Wildland Defense Ordinance allows for the Coconino County Emergency Manager to remove restrictions when conditions for fire restrictions no longer exist. A link to the full ordinance can be found at www.coconino.az.gov/ready.
