City Of Flagstaff Re-Implements Fire Restrictions

City of Flagstaff officials say they’ll return to stage-one fire restrictions Friday morning amid drying conditions in the region and lack of monsoon moisture.

The use of charcoal grills and smoking in parks will be prohibited along with all open flames and fire pits in the city limits. The decision follows similar moves by the Coconino and Kaibab national forests to re-implement bans on campfires and smoking outside established recreation areas. Officials hope to reduce the chance of human-caused wildfire during a time when monsoon rains would normally bring the region ample moisture.
