“In an effort to lower the number of man-made fires, the Southwest Region of the Forest Service is enacting a campfire ban order throughout all of its forests, including all six Arizona National Forests.
The order includes all igniting, building, maintaining, attending or using a fire, including charcoal grills and barbecues, coal and wood-burning stoves, the forest service said in a press release. It is set to begin tomorrow, April 22, at 6 p.m.”
