Stage III Fire Restrictions and Forest Closure
Date(s): Jun 30, 2020 - Jul 31, 2020
Wildfires have burned more than 224,500 acres this year on the Tonto National Forest. Ongoing extreme fire danger due to dry conditions and hot temperatures following a wet winter that produced an abundance of dry brush and grass, have led Tonto officials to close the state’s largest national forest beginning at 6 a.m. on July 2. Some lakes and forest roads remain accessible.
