Stage 1 Fire Restrictions Lifted in the GilaJuly 9th, 2013 at 4:00 pm by Hawa Konte under Wildfires
With the recent rainfall, stage one fire restrictions have been lifted in the Gila National Forest.
Visitors are now able to light campfires again in undeveloped areas of the forest.
A forest supervisor says fewer human-caused fires allowed for personnel to focus on the Silver Fire and other lightning-strike fires.
Visitors are still encouraged to practice appropriate campfire and smoking safety in the forest.
