Prescott National Forest will rescind all fire restrictions on Wednesday, July 18 at 8:00 am due to significant amounts of precipitation across the Forest. Visitors are reminded that the Emergency Area Closure for the Gladiator Fire will remain in effect.
Moisture has created wetter conditions that have lessened fire potential, though continued caution is still urged. Remember, to properly extinguish a campfire:
- Pour lots of water on the fire to drown all embers; pour until the hissing stops.
- Stir the campfire ashes and embers with a shovel.
- Make sure everything is wet, and cold to the touch.
