Local law enforcement are keeping a watchful eye out for campfires.

As fire season rages on, authorities are doing their due diligence to protect the region from worse wildfires. Now, the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office and Flagstaff Police Department will use air patrols during the early morning and evening hours.

These patrols make it possible for officers to spot campfires and other possibly illegal activity quickly. First responders will also be able to better locate and ultimately respond to any potential fires. These measures are set to continue until the threat of a wildfire is minimal or the fire bans are lifted.

Woods Watch Volunteers are also stepping up to the plate, spending time on the ground as they watch out for possible wildfires and suspicious activity.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
