Yavapai County Northern and Eastern Regions: Lifting Fire Ban

15 July 2014  

The map designates the area of lifting the fire ban.

With the increasing moisture within the Northern and Eastern Regions of Yavapai County the following fire jurisdictions will be lifting their fire restrictions in conjunction with Yavapai County Eastern and Northern Regions: Ash Fork Fire, Juniper Woods Fire, Seligman Fire, Camp Verde Fire, Clarkdale Fire, Verde Valley Fire, Montezuma-Rimrock Fire, and Sedona Fire.

The fire ban in the Northern and Eastern Zones of Yavapai County will be lifted effective: July 15th, 2014 at 8:00 A.M.

The Yavapai County Fire Ban will remain in place for the Southern zone, until the county records significant amounts of moisture.

Under Yavapai County restrictions all campfires and open flames, such as tiki lamps, are banned. The ban also prohibits the outdoor use of equipment that generates open flames or a spark. This restricts the use of welding equipment and chain saws. Residential propane and natural gas barbeques with covers are permitted; they must be attended at all times. The full version of the county’s fire ban can be found at:
