Effective June 1, Tubac Fire District will not authorize or allow any open burning within fire district boundaries until further notice. This restriction includes current burn permit holders. The Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management implemented Stage 2 fire restrictions on May 26. These restrictions impact much of the area in Santa Cruz County and Tubac Fire District.
