Prescott National Forest Rescinds Fire Restrictions
PRESCOTT, AZ – July 21, 2021— Due to monsoonal activity and sufficient rainfall, the Prescott National Forest will rescind all fire restrictions as of 8 a.m. Wednesday, July 21, 2021.
Fire danger is moderate across the forest. Visitors are still asked to remain vigilant and avoid activities that could accidentally cause wildfires – refrain from campfires on dry and windy days and remember that it is always illegal to leave a campfire unattended. In addition, fireworks are never allowed on any National Forest land.
Closures unrelated to fire and smoking restrictions remain in effect including the Raphael Fire around Sycamore Canyon and the Tiger Fire near Crown King.
