MGN

Beginning August 2 at 8 a.m., Bureau of Land Management will lift Colorado River District fire restrictions

LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) announced they will lift all fire restrictions on public lands administered by the Colorado River District including Lake Havasu, Kingman and Yuma Field Offices on Tuesday, August 2 at 8 a.m.

Restrictions have been lifted due to widespread precipitation causing fuel moisture and there is less likely to be any fires of any kind.

According to the BLM, before hiking or camping, make sure to be aware of fire regulations, restrictions or area closures.

Fireworks and exploding targets are prohibited at all times on federally managed lands in Arizona.

  • Metal fire rings or grills should be used where present. Wood placed on a fire should never exceed the size of the grill or fire ring.
  • If building a fire on the ground, the location should be away from adjoining or overhanging flammable material and the ground beneath and around should be cleared. Fires should be avoided on windy days.
  • If you have campfire, make sure it is fully extinguished before leaving the area. Fires should be soaked with water and dirt and stirred with a shovel until completely cold to the touch.
  • If you use a portable stove, ensure the area is clear of grasses and other fine fuels. Prevent stoves from tipping and starting a fire.
  • Cigarettes should never be thrown out the window of a vehicle and ashtrays should be used to prevent wildfires.
  • Practice Leave No Trace principles, pack out cigarette butts and burned materials from your camping area.
  • Never park a vehicle over dead grass because the catalytic converter can ignite the vegetation.
  • Use caution when discharging a firearm, operating an internal combustion engine, welding, operating acetylene, other torches with an open flame or using explosives (where permitted).
