Drought conditions, hot temperatures and increased fire danger have resulted in increased fire restrictions for the Tonto National Forest. Most types of fire or fire-causing activities will be prohibited across the Tonto National Forest.

Building, maintaining, attending or using a fire, campfire or wood or charcoal-burning device is prohibited, except in Forest Service-provided fire grills and grates in developed recreation sites on the Cave Creek and Mesa ranger districts where charcoal only may be used. No campfires of any type are allowed under any conditions in any other areas on the forest.

Smoking is only allowed in a developed campground, vehicle, or building.

A violation is punishable by a fine of up to $5,000 for individuals, $10,000 for organizations, and imprisonment for up to six months.
