2 national forests in Arizona reduce restrictions

Updated:

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Two northern Arizona forests are decreasing fire restrictions due to a reduced risk of major wildfires.

The Coconino and Kaibab national forests say recent rains are a help but they're cautioning visitors that fire season is not over.

Even with restrictions decreased from Stage 2 to Stage 1, campfires are allowed only in developed campgrounds.

Another change reopens the Kaibab National Forest's Bill Williams Mountain Watershed to the public. However, the Fossil Creek area of the Coconino National Forest remains closed.

Fire staff officer Don Muise of the Coconino National Forest says many forest areas remain very dry.
