As the lackluster monsoon rain season drags on, officials with the Prescott Fire Department and Central Arizona Fire and Medical Authority (CAFMA) said this week that they will impose Stage 1 fire restrictions on the Quad Cities starting at 8 a.m. Friday, Aug. 14. The restrictions cover the 42 square miles that comprise Prescott as well as the total of 365 square miles that comprise Prescott Valley, Dewey-Humboldt, Chino Valley and Paulden, fire officials stated in an Aug. 11 news release. CAFMA officials added that the fire restrictions also apply to the areas that surround Prescott, including Williamson Valley, upper Copper Basin Road, the Mountain Club area, and Ponderosa Park off of White Spar Road. Other spots under these fire restrictions include the area on Senator Highway that covers Karen Drive, Sweet Acres and Oak Knoll Village, as well as the Government Canyon and Diamond Valley areas south of Prescott, fire officials stated.
