Mohave County Lifts Bans On Fire And Fireworks

Mohave County Parks

Mohave County officials have lifted a ban on outdoor fires and fireworks in unincorporated areas below 4,000 feet.

The order was put in place in May amid extremely dry conditions, but the board of supervisors says the area has received enough precipitation to reduce wildfire danger. Officials acknowledge, however, that most of Mohave County remains very dry and they urge caution.

A county ban on fires and fireworks above 4,000 feet in elevation was lifted in July. Campfires are still prohibited in the Hualapai Mountain Park near Kingman.

Fireworks remain illegal year-round on all Arizona national forests.
