Due to increasing drought conditions, very high fire danger and public safety concerns, the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests (ASNFs) has implemented four area closures across the forest. Areas outside of the closures with remain in Stage II Fire Restrictions.
Of these areas, two are located in the Black Mesa Ranger District and one of these is shared with the Lakeside Ranger District, one in the Springerville Ranger District, and one in the Alpine Ranger District.
