|Fire Restrictions and Closures|
Know Before You Go! Check on current restrictions before heading to your favorite BLM location.
For the most up-to-date fire restriction information, please call (602) 417-9373, or toll-free 1-877-864-6985. During business hours you may call (602) 417-9300, or visit the Fire Restrictions page at http://firerestrictions.us/az for information regarding all lands in Arizona, including BLM public lands.
Hot summer temperatures and strong gusty winds cause very dry conditions in which a fire will grow quickly, spreading rapidly. Fire restrictions are implemented to lessen the chance of human-caused wildfires.
Please be EXTRA careful with fire or any outdoor activity that may cause a spark. One less spark is one less wildfire.
