No extra fire restrictions in effect for Coconino National Forest, Flagstaff

FLAGSTAFF — Due to the ongoing unusual fire season in northern Arizona, the Coconino National Forest currently has no fire restrictions, other than a year-round ban already in place.

“It’s been a really weird year in that we don’t have fire controls in place right now,” said Randy Shaffer, deputy public affairs officer for the U.S. Forest Service.

Currently, in addition to the existing year-round camping and campfire bans, only small areas are closed around the three wildfires that are currently burning. border It was extended in May to reduce man-made fires.

Meteorologist Reggie Rokes of the National Weather Service in Flagstaff attributes this year’s unusual fire season to the region’s record winter snowfall, followed by widespread meltwater and prolonged showers.
