PRESCOTT, AZ (July 11, 2018) – Due to precipitation received and predicted continued monsoon activity across the forest, the Prescott National Forest will lift all fire restrictions and the area closure on the Bradshaw Ranger District on Friday, July 13, 2018 at 8:00 am. While all fire restrictions will be lifted, forest visitors are reminded that the potential for wildfires still exist and to please use caution with campfires and other potential ignitions sources.
“On behalf of the Prescott National Forest we would like to thank our local cooperative agencies, resident neighbors, and forest visitors for their involvement and understanding throughout a very long fire severity season. The fire restrictions and area closure that we all worked together on proved to be effective and successful. Thank you all for your contribution.”
