County Fire Ban Lifted in Conjunction with U.S. Forest Service

[Information is HERE at County’s website.]

Effective July 12, 2011, at 8:00 a.m., the Coconino County fire ban, which was imposed on June 10, 2011, will be lifted.  The ban was imposed on open burning on public and private lands in the unincorporated areas of the County.  The ban is lifted in conjunction with actions taken by the United States Forest Service to rescind restrictions on the Coconino National Forest and the Kaibab National Forest.

The following action is written into the County’s fire ban:

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that this Resolution 2011-15 imposing a ban on open fires shall be lifted at the same time as the U. S. Forest Service lifts its restrictions of smoking and campfires outside developed recreation sites on federal lands.

While the ban has been lifted, citizens are encouraged to use caution on private and public lands and be sure to completely extinguish cigarettes and campfires.

For more information, call Paul Hellenberg, Coconino County Interim Emergency Services Manager, at (928) 679-8310.
