Bullhead City, AZ   – Mohave County is implementing outdoor fire and permissible consumer fireworks use prohibitions in the unincorporated areas of the county, effective 8 a.m., May 26, 2022, due to very high fire danger conditions caused by extremely dry vegetation, high winds, and a significant increase in human-caused fire ignitions.

The Bullhead Fire District will implement Stage II fire restrictions, including an open fire ban, effective 8:00 am, May 26, 2022.  The prohibitions apply to all open fires and campfires. The ban also rescinds any open burn permits issued by the Bullhead Fire District within the last 30 days. No burn permit applications will be accepted until further notice.  As a reminder, the burning of weeds is strictly prohibited.

The following fires are exempt from the Stage II fire restrictions:

  1. Fires set or permitted by any public officer, federal, state, or local, in the performance of the officer’s official duties.
  2. Fires set or permitted by the State Entomologist or Mohave County agricultural agents for the purpose of disease and pest prevention.
  3. Fires set or permitted by the United States, the State of Arizona, or any federally-recognized Indian tribe, or any of their respective departments, agencies, or political subdivisions for the purpose of fire prevention or control, or watershed rehabilitation or control through vegetative manipulation.
  4. Fires permitted by the Emergency Management Officer or designee. The conditions of the permit, including permitted dates and the nature of the burning, shall be clearly stated on any such permit issued.
  5. Fires fueled by propane or charcoal.

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.
