Fire Restrictions Lifted for BLM Kingman Field Office
July 15, 2013
Kingman, Ariz. - On Friday, August 2, 2013, fire restrictions will be lifted for Bureau of Land Management (BLM) lands administered by the Kingman Field Office. The Lake Havasu and Yuma Field Offices continue to be in fire restrictions.
Due to weather conditions in northwestern Arizona, fire restrictions are no longer necessary.
“Even though restrictions are no longer needed in the Kingman Field Office area, we’re asking the public to be very careful when using fire,” said Michael Trent, BLM Colorado River District Fire Management Officer. “Under the right conditions our public lands still have potential for wildfires to spread rapidly and become dangerous.”
Please be extremely careful and exercise the following precautions when using fire. Make sure you have a 10-foot circle cleared around your campfire, be sure to have a shovel and plenty of water on hand, and put the fire DEAD OUT before leaving. Smokers need to make sure their cigarettes or cigars are put out when they are through smoking and dispose of them properly. Remember not to park motor vehicles where the exhaust system could cause grass or other vegetation to ignite.
