The Nantahala and Pisgah National Forests lifted forest-wide fire restrictions and will now allow campfires. The Forest Service is lifting these restrictions due to increased precipitation and green up throughout the forests.

The fire restrictions went into effect on April 9 due to high fire danger. This decision was in alignment with the N.C. Forest Service’s burn ban for 32 western counties that went into effect on April 3.
