Campfire ban begins in southeast Arizona
Published: May 8, 2012 at 7:17 am
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.
