July 16, 2018 - 5:10 pm

Effective Tuesday, July 17, 2018 beginning at 12:00 A.M. - Stage 2 Fire Restrictions will be lifted on the Fort Apache Indian Reservation.  Fire danger is “moderate” and a monsoonal weather pattern is predicted to continue across the Reservation this week.

Stage 1 Fire Restrictions are in effect year-round on the Fort Apache Indian Reservation. This means that building, maintaining, attending, or using a fire, campfire, coal or wood burning stove, any type of charcoal fueled broiler or open fire of any type is not allowed in UNDEVELOPED areas.

Be advised that the White Mountain Apache Tribe’s Executive Forest Closure is still in effect until an official notification rescinding the order is released by the Tribe. 

Fort Apache agency thanks everyone for their cooperation.  Although fire danger has decreased, the public is urged to stay vigilant and safe.  Please continue to be careful with fire.  Make sure you completely extinguish your fire before leaving (drown, stir and drown again). As always, fireworks are prohibited on the Fort Apache Indian Reservation.
