Contact(s): Patrick Lair, 928-643-8172

Beginning at 8:00 am on Tuesday, July 17, the North Kaibab Ranger District of the Kaibab National Forest will rescind campfire and smoking restrictions. Recent monsoonal weather has created wetter conditions and reduced fire severity across the forest. Restrictions on the Williams and Tusayan Ranger Districts were lifted over the weekend, which means that all fire restrictions across the Kaibab National Forest are rescinded as of tomorrow.

The Kaibab National Forest wishes to remind the public to continue practicing fire safety despite an increase in moisture.

Fire restrictions vary from forest to forest based on differences in weather and terrain. For information on fire restrictions in other areas of Arizona, please visit: http://www.azfireinfo.az.gov/

The Kaibab National Forest thanks the public for their continued patience and cooperation with ongoing efforts to increase fire safety on the forest.
