PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management has lifted fire restrictions on state-owned and state-managed lands in several counties.
The move was made Monday afternoon with the recent monsoon rains in the northern and central portions of the state.
Apache, Gila, Maricopa, Navajo and Yavapai counties now have been released from Stage I Fire Restrictions.
This means campfires will be allowed once again, but forestry officials still urge public to be safe with fire.
On Tuesday morning, Coconino County and a portion of Mohave County will be released from Stage I restrictions.
The Mohave County area affected includes state-owned and managed lands north of the Hualapai Reservation.
