While this is from the BLM the USFS statement is the same.

(PHOENIX, AZ. May 9, 2011)—The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) implements
on May 11, 2011 restrictions that greatly reduce the risk of wild fires on
public lands north and south of Phoenix, Arizona.

With April and May temperatures frequently above average, the vegetation is
exceedingly dry and the risk of wildland fire is at the Very High and
Extreme level. People who enjoy public lands north and south of Phoenix
can reduce the risk of fire by practicing safety and strictly adhering to
these “fire restrictions and safety tips:”

1. Do not build or use a fire, campfire, charcoal broiler or wood stove.
Use of propane and petroleum-fueled stoves, lanterns or heating devices is
currently allowed.
2. No smoking, except within an enclosed vehicle or building.
3. No discharging a firearm (no target shooting or other shooting)
outside of taking game in accordance with Arizona hunting laws in hunting
4. Be aware that driving off-road over dry grass could ignite a fire; be
sure that all vehicles and tires are in excellent working order; chains or
other recreational trailer equipment must not drag or dangle from the
truck; secure all recreational equipment; it’s always a good idea to carry
a fire extinguisher.

Fire restrictions are in effect until further notice for all public lands
administrated by the BLM Phoenix District – including popular areas such as
the Ague Fria National Monument, the Table Mesa Recreation or Boulders
Staging Camp Ground north of Phoenix, the Back Country Byways west of
Phoenix, the Sonoran Desert National Monument, Saddle Mountain Recreation
Area, and the Painted Rock Petroglyph site, southwest of Phoenix, and all
wilderness areas. Violation of these Fire Restrictions is punishable by a
fine of not more than $1,000, or imprisonment of not more than 12 months,
or both. (43 CFR 9212.4).

Fire restrictions for public lands may vary in other parts of the state,
depending on the level of fire danger and may be accessed at: or for information on fire prevention tips and
restrictions in your area, contact your local BLM office, or visit BLM’s
website at

The BLM manages more land - over 245 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
