Fire Restrictions Lifted for Colorado River District BLM and Hualapai Mountain Park

Chad Benson, Fire Prevention Officer (928) 718-3750

On Thursday, September 10th at 6:00 a.m., fire restrictions will be lifted for Bureau of Land Management (BLM) lands administered by the Colorado River District and the Mohave County Hualapai Mountain Park. This includes all public lands in the Lake Havasu, Yuma, and Kingman Field Offices which cover Mohave, Yavapai, Yuma, La Paz, Imperial, and Riverside Counties.

Sufficient moisture has been received throughout these areas and fire restrictions are no longer necessary. There have been some small lightning fires in the Kingman area in the past few weeks but the current levels of moisture and humidity have been high enough to keep the fires small.

“The BLM greatly appreciates the public’s cooperation in helping to minimize the number of human caused wildfires this summer on BLM lands,” said Becky Heick, BLM Colorado River District Manager. “Even though restrictions are no longer needed, we’re asking the public to be very careful when using fire. Under the right conditions our public lands still have potential for wildfires to spread rapidly and become dangerous.”

Please be extremely careful and exercise the following precautions when using fire. Make sure you have a ten-foot circle cleared around your campfire, be sure to have a shovel and plenty of water on hand and put the fire DEAD OUT before leaving. Smokers need to make sure your cigarettes or cigars are put out when you are through smoking and dispose of them properly. Remember not to park motor vehicles where the exhaust system could cause grass or other vegetation to ignite.

Current fire restriction information can also be found online at www.publiclands.org/firenews or www.azfireinfo.com. You may also call the fire restriction hotline toll free at 1-877-864-6985. To report a wildfire please call Arizona Interagency Dispatch Center at (800) 309-7081.

The BLM manages more land – 256 million acres – than any other Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western States, including Alaska. The Bureau, with a budget of about $1 billion, also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM’s multiple-use mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Bureau accomplishes this by managing such activities as outdoor recreation, livestock grazing, mineral development, and energy production, and by conserving natural, historical, cultural, and other resources on public lands.
