    REOPENED as of July 6th!

    Both the Kaibab and Coconino national forests are reopened to the public as of Tuesday after being closed due to extreme wildfire danger, national forest officials said.

    State officials said that the Tonto National Forest will end Stage 3 fire closures on Wednesday morning, but Stage 2 restrictions are still in place.

    The fire danger in both forests has reduced due to recent rainfall and cooler temperatures, officials said. Fire danger is still present and the forests are reopening with fire restrictions in place.
