Gila National Forest Lifts Stage 1 Fire Restrictions

July 8, 2013- Silver City, NM-  With the onset of  summer rains, the Gila National Forest will be lifting Stage 1 Fire Restrictions tomorrow morning, July 9th, at 6:00 A.M. MDT, allowing forest visitors to enjoy campfires again in undeveloped areas across the Forest.
 
“The Forest experienced minimal human-caused fires this fire season,” states Kelly Russell, Gila National Forest Supervisor. “Visitors were diligent in following the restrictions and we appreciate their efforts.”  Fewer human-caused fires allowed Forest and Fire personnel to focus on the Silver Fire and other lightning-strike fires, of which there were many.
Forest visitors are still encouraged to practice campfire and smoking safety by using their ashtrays and ensuring campfires are cold to the touch before leaving their camp or retiring for the night.  Always have a shovel and water available and place the fire away from low-hanging branches and dry grasses.
 
For further information on fire safety practices and reducing fire risk in the Home Ignition Zone, please contact Ellen Brown at 575-388-8262, or the Gila National Forest at 575-388-8201.
