Fire Restrictions Enacted At Tonto National Forest

Fire restrictions are coming to the Tonto National Forest, due to hot temperatures and increased fire danger.

Starting at 8 a.m. Tuesday, most types of fire or fire-causing activities will be banned until further notice across the entire national forest.

But you can still build a fire in one of those metal fire rings or grills provided by the Forest Service at developed recreation sites.

You can also use petroleum-fueled stoves, lanterns, and heating devices.
