Red Rock Restrictions Lifted

Flagstaff, AZ – All campfire and smoking restrictions will be lifted today on the Red Rock Ranger District of the Coconino National Forest and the Verde Ranger District of the Prescott National Forest. Managers say monsoon activity has created enough moisture to lower the risk of fire danger. Though fire restrictions will be lifted, forest managers remind the public to use caution with fire in the National Forests. They say fires should be built in existing fire rings and campers should avoid starting fires during windy conditions.
