With Rain, Some State-Land Restrictions Lifting

For 15 years, In&Out Magazine has been the definitive source of “Everything that’s going on” in and out of the community. We thank you, our readers, as well as the businesses that support the magazine through advertising, for that opportunity. But with little going on, and many businesses suspending or canceling their ads during the Covid-19 crisis, we are suspending publication of the magazine and web sites for the month of May. 


STATE FORESTRY DEPARTMENT — Due to the recent monsoonal activity across the state, the Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management will lift fire restrictions in some parts of the state tomorrow.

At 0800, on Friday, July 13th, state-owned and managed lands in Coconino County, south of the Grand Canyon, will reopen to recreation.

However, state lands in Coconino County, north of the Grand Canyon, remain in Stage II Fire Restrictions.

The closure order for state-owned and managed lands in Gila County will also be lifted, but Stage I Fire Restrictions will be in place. Under Stage I, campfires are allowed in a developed campsite only.

Also on Friday, State Forestry will lift restrictions to Mohave County, south of the Hualapai Reservation. State lands in Mohave County, north of the reservation, are still under Stage II Fire Restrictions.

Restrictions will also be lifted in Yavapai County and in Southern Arizona, including Cochise, Graham, Pima, Pinal, and Santa Cruz Counties.

Until more widespread rain is received in northeastern Arizona, closures are still in place on state-owned and managed lands in Apache and Navajo Counties. Fire restrictions also remain in effect in Greenlee, La Paz, Maricopa, and Yuma Counties.

“Even though we are lifting some fire restrictions, we must not become complacent. Every day, our crews are chasing wildfires from lightning due to these monsoon storms. We do not need a human-caused fire to add to the mix. So please be cautious and use your best judgement.” said State Forester Jeff Whitney.

As always, target shooting and fireworks are never allowed on Arizona State Trust lands at any time of the year.
