Northern Arizona agencies to enact fire restrictions

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Parts of northern Arizona soon will be under fire restrictions.

Fire officials are hopeful that placing limits on the areas people can smoke and have open fires will mean fewer wildfires to battle this year.

The lowest level of restrictions for Prescott, Flagstaff, and the Coconino, Tonto, Prescott and parts of the Kaibab national forests go into effect Friday morning.

Coconino National Forest Supervisor Earl Stewart says it could be a long fire season, and officials need the public's help.

Charcoal grills at Flagstaff city parks will be covered and "no smoking" signs will go up along trails.

Flagstaff police say they're also expanding patrols of areas where people are known to camp.

On forest land, campfires and cooking fires will be allowed only in developed campgrounds.
