All campfire, smoking, and target shooting restrictions affecting the Tonto National Forest have been lifted, effective 8 a.m., Wednesday, July 25.

“The fire restrictions, which covered the entire forest, are no longer needed because fire danger has been reduced by increased moisture and humidity from the annual monsoon weather,” a statement from the forest service stated. “These conditions prompted officials to lift the forest fire restrictions which have been in place since May 15.”

Campfires and cooking fires are now allowed again, though campers are reminded to properly extinguish them.

For more information, contact the Tonto National Forest at (602) 225-5200, or see online at www.fs.usda.gov/tonto.
