High temperatures, dry weather and greater wildfire danger have led to fire restrictions in central Arizona's Tonto National Forest.
The restrictions begin at 8 a.m. Friday. Campfires and most types of fire-causing activities will be banned across the entire forest. Charcoal-burning devices also are off limits.
Violating the restrictions is punishable by up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $5,000.
Petroleum stoves, lanterns and heating devices are allowed.
Officials say the restrictions will protect the forests, nearby homes and those visiting the area.
