Bureau of Land Management starts fire ban May 22
Special to the Tribune

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management plans to implement fire-use restrictions Wednesday, May 22 on the Agua Fria National Monument and all other BLM lands in Yavapai County.

The restrictions will cover all of the BLM's Phoenix District.

It will be illegal to build any kind of fire from wood or charcoal. Smoking will be limited to enclosed vehicles and buildings.

Shooting guns will be prohibited unless someone is legally hunting game.

The seasonal restrictions will stay in place until monsoon rains are sufficient to reduce fire danger. The monsoon typically arrives in Arizona in the first half of July.

BLM officials urge the public to be aware that simply driving on grass can ignite a dangerous wildfire during wildfire season. Don't let chains on vehicles drag on the road. It's always a good idea to carry a fire extinguisher.

Fireworks always are illegal on federal public lands in Arizona.

Violations of fire restrictions can bring a $1,000 fine and/or a year in jail.

For more information about fire restrictions across Arizona, go online to a new site called firerestrictions.us/az.
