GRAND CANYON, Ariz. — While some fire restrictions have been lifted in parts of Arizona, Grand Canyon National Park remains under Stage 2 fire restrictions.

The park implemented restrictions for the South Rim, North Rim and inner-Canyon June 11.

Under Stage 2, all wood burning and charcoal fires, including campfires, warming fires, and charcoal barbeques are prohibited. The use of liquid petroleum or LPG fueled devices that can be turned on and off, such as stoves, lanterns, or heating devices are allowed if used in an area that is barren or cleared of all flammable materials within 3 feet of the device. This prohibition does not apply to the use of any type of fire for the purposes of lighting charcoal for cooking within the Colorado River corridor shoreline.

Outdoor smoking, except as specifically exempted within an enclosed vehicle is prohibited as well as using explosives or any incendiary devices.
