  • Highline Fire Public Safety Closure Order Revision 3


    The purpose of the temporary Area Closure Order is to protect National Forest visitor and firefighter health and safety by eliminating potential for members of the general public entering into the Highline Fire burned area due to potential snag/falling trees hazards, re-ignitions, flash flooding and conflict with firefighting operations.


    1. USFS Law Enforcement Officers will assist in implementation of the Order and serve as liaisons with Gila County and Arizona Game and Fish and other fire prevention personnel.  This order becomes effective at 4:00 am on August 03, 2017 until 8:00 pm August 31, 2017 unless terminated sooner.
