Date: June 15, 2012

As a result of continued dry weather, fire restrictions are now in effect in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and Rainbow Bridge National Monument. Current and forecasted weather patterns coupled with extremely dry vegetation have created hazardous fire conditions throughout Arizona and Utah.

Campfires will only be permitted below the high water mark of the lake in areas devoid of vegetation or in fire pits and grills provided in developed areas. Devices fueled by petroleum or LPG products are allowed in all locations.

Smoking is prohibited except in an enclosed vehicle or a developed recreation site, or while stopped in an area at least six feet in diameter that is barren or cleared of all flammable material down to mineral soil.

Fireworks or other pyrotechnic devices are prohibited at all times on all federal public lands.
