The Lake Mohave Ranchos Fire District comprises 144 square miles encompassing Dolan Springs Arizona. The district runs up Pierce Ferry Rd from U.S. Route 93 to 23rd street. We have consolidated with Grapevine Mesa Fire District and now cover that district as well. While we will respond to other outlying areas, they are not in our fire district and as such are not covered by property taxes. Fire responses outside of our fire district will be billed at rates established with Arizona State Land. We have mutual aid agreements with all other agencies in the area and also with Arizona State Land and the National Park Service.
Please be aware that as brush season approaches, individual land owners are responsible for maintaining their property. A minimum of 30 feet fire break surrounding structures is recommended. This includes brush, vehicles, trash, or any other combustible materials. In the event of a wild fire, those properties that have structures protected by a fire break will be given priority protection in the event of limited man power. We work closely with Arizona State Land and other fire districts during these events to provide the best fire protection possible. As always, protecting life is priority number one, with property being second. Also, as a side note, when we have these incidents and the mountain ranges surrounding our community are on fire, PLEASE only call 9-1-1 in the event that NEW fires are being witnessed, or if you have information regarding life or property that is immediately threatened. Receiving countless 9-1-1 calls because the mountain is on fire is not helpful, and in fact hinders our ability to maintain important communications including non-fire related emergencies.
The Lake Mohave Ranchos Fire District is authorized by the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) to regulate open burning within the fire district. The following guidelines pertain to open burning.
Please note this is for information only, any residents wishing to “open burn” must be in possession of a valid burn permit. Please come by the station for full details and to request a permit. There is no fee for burn permits.
