Tonto National Forest issues a warning for July Fourth visitors

The Tonto National Forest is reminding people who may be out in the woods over the Fourth of July holiday that fire conditions are now extreme.  Forest spokesman David Albo said that means no fires, incendiary devices, fireworks or shooting.

"We have electric signs with information on fire restrictions along the highway and also at every campground. Every developed campground has signs as well," Albo said.

Fines for violations of the fire policy can range from $5,000 to $10,000, with a six month jail term.
