Campfire ban begins in southeast Arizona

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Campfires on state land will be off-limits until further notice.

The Arizona State Forestry Division implemented restrictions Monday on campfires due to the wildfire danger in southern part of the state.

The restrictions include prohibiting the use of charcoal-burning devices or other torches. Smoking outdoors is also prohibited. Authorities say anyone who smokes must be inside a vehicle, building or a campground area cleared of flammable material.

Fireworks are also prohibited.

The ban extends to all Arizona State Trust land, Arizona Department of Transportation land and several Arizona State Parks.
