Arizona Revised Statute On Open Burning
Arizona Revised Statute 49-501.A (revised in the fall of 2007) reads as follows: “From May 1 through September 30 each year, it is unlawful for any person to ignite, cause to be ignited, permit to be ignited, or suffer, allow or maintain any open outdoor fire in area ‘A’ as defined in section 49-541.” Area ‘A’ includes anything west of Florence Junction and north of Arizona Farms Road, continuing into Maricopa County including all of the Superstition Fire & Medical District jurisdiction. This is NOT a Pinal County or SFMD mandate, but rather an Arizona State Legislative mandate.
