SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Color Country Fire Management officials will lift fire restrictions in southwestern Utah and the Arizona Strip beginning at midnight.

Recent rainfall and lower temperatures in southwestern Utah and on the Arizona Strip have reduced the risk of wildland fires enough to allow the restrictions to be rescinded.

In Utah, restrictions are being lifted against campfires and smoking in all of Washington, Kane, Garfield and Iron counties, and Beaver County west of Interstate-15.

It also includes fire restrictions in Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks and the Dixie National Forest.
