Bullhead Fire District Implements Outdoor Fire & Permissible Consumer Fireworks Ban

Bullhead City, AZ (May 18, 2021) – Bullhead Fire District is implementing a stage 1 outdoor fire and permissible consumer fireworks use prohibitions effective May 18, 2021, due to a very high fire danger caused by extremely dry vegetation, high winds, and a significant increase in human-caused fire ignitions. The Mohave County Risk and Emergency Management Department issued a Determination of Fire Emergency for all four Fire Zones in Mohave County on May 6, 2021, recommending the prohibitions. This Determination was issued following consultation with the fire departments in the County and the Bureau of Land management.

The Bullhead Fire District strongly encourages residents to be alert to the fire danger, respect the prohibitions, and take all precautions to avoid accidentally igniting a vegetation fire. Aside from open fire and fireworks ignitions, many fires are ignited along roadways due to improper disposal of smoking materials.

The prohibitions apply to all open fires, campfires, and permissible consumer fireworks, with the exemptions listed below. As a reminder, no burn permits allowed in the Bullhead Fire District, and the burning of weeds is strictly prohibited.

The following fires are exempt from the Outdoor Fire prohibition.

  1. Fires fueled by propane or charcoal.

Questions can be directed to Fire Marshal Barbie Skeen-Barrett at 928-758-3971.
