  • Stage III Forest Closure

    Wildfires have burned more than 224,500 acres this year on the Tonto National Forest.  Ongoing extreme fire danger due to dry conditions and hot temperatures following a wet winter that produced an abundance of dry brush and grass, have led Tonto officials to close the state’s largest national forest beginning at 6 a.m. on July 2.   Some lakes and forest roads remain accessible.
