Wet weather was only a brief respite on fire risk

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — Campfire and smoking restrictions remain in effect in national forests in northern, central and eastern Arizona despite rain and snow in many areas last weekend.

Forest Service officials say warm, dry and windy conditions are expected to quickly dry out forest fuels and bring a return to high fire danger.

The restrictions are in place in the Coconino, Kaibab, Prescott, Tonto and Apache-Sitgreaves forests. The Coronado National Forest in southern Arizona does not now have fire restrictions in place.

Under the five forests' restrictions, fires, campfires, charcoal, coal and wood stoves are generally allowed in developed campgrounds only. The restrictions also limit smoking to within enclosed vehicles or buildings or in developed campgrounds.

The Kaibab National Forest's restrictions apply only to the Williams and Tusayan (TOO'-say-ohn) ranger districts.
