The Apache National Forest is temporarily closed to public entry because of the Wallow fire. The restriction was issued at noon June 3. On Thursday, officials also closed Coronado National Forest beginning at noon due to extreme fire danger.

The temporary closure applies to all ranger districts of the Coronado National Forest, and includes visitor centers, campgrounds, picnic areas, trails, summer cabins, organization camps and all other public uses.

Portions of the Kaibab National Forest are under restrictions as of Wednesday.
