Over the past few weeks, constant monsoon moisture has decreased fire danger from extreme to low. Effective Friday, July 19, at 8 a.m., current Stage I fire restrictions blanketing the Forest will be lifted. Areas of the forest affected by the Tres Lagunas, Thompson Ridge and Jaroso fires will remain closed for public safety.
Forest visitors are encouraged to be fire safe. When building a campfire be sure to keep safety in mind before, during, and after you've built it. For more information on outdoor safety tips please visit: http://www.smokeybear.com/be-smart-outdoors.asp.
