FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Coconino County, in conjunction with the Coconino and Kaibab (South) National Forests, will terminate fire restrictions under the WildFire Defense Ordinance, effective Wednesday, July 6, at 8:00 a.m.
0029Monsoonal rainfall throughout Northern Arizona over the last week has brought moisture to tinder-dry forests and area landscapes. When fire conditions sufficiently decrease, the ordinance allows for the Coconino County Emergency Management Director to terminate fire restrictions.

Although much of the region received rain, several areas may have received much less rainfall and fire conditions may still be high in some locations. Residents and visitors are asked to continue to use caution when using equipment or items that can spark a fire. They are also advised to thoroughly extinguish all campfires, operate ATVs and motorcycles with spark arrestors and to use caution when utilizing barbeque grills. Residents and visitors are reminded that they can be held legally responsible for causing any wildfire.

The County Board of Supervisors enacted the ordinance on June 15, at Stage 1 restrictions in unincorporated areas of the County due to fire danger. A link to the full Wildfire Defense Ordinance can be found at on the Coconino County homepage at
