Fire Restrictions

Gila County Ordinance 11-02 stipulates that each time the Tonto National Forest issues fire restrictions, similar restrictions will apply to all unincorporated areas within Gila County. Therefore, fire restrictions for all unincorporated areas within Gila County will also begin 8 a.m. on Tuesday, May 23, 2017.

Gila County’s fire restrictions exclude all cities, towns, and tribal lands.  The ordinance prohibits residents from building, maintaining, attending or igniting open outdoor fires, bonfires, campfires, or fireworks.
