Burn Ban Update
Mohave County implemented Stage II fire restrictions that began on May 12, 2020, banning all outdoor fires, campfires and permissible consumer fireworks on private and public lands in the county’s unincorporated areas. The Bullhead City Fire Department subsequently instituted the Stage II fire burn ban within city limits, which began on, May 27, 2020, until a determination of the Fire Emergency was rescinded. This decision was based upon current fire weather conditions, which included extremely dry vegetation, heavy fuel loads, wind, and extreme temperatures.
Earlier this morning (11/11/20), Mohave County announced that the emergency conditions warranting the ban no longer exists within the county, which allows for the immediate lifting of the ban.
Therefore, the prohibition/ban on open fires within the City of Bullhead City has been lifted as of 6:00 a.m., November 11, 2020. We encourage you to think before you act and be fire aware. Being fire safe is everyone’s responsibility! For additional information, please contact our Community Risk Reduction Division at 928-758-3971.
