Free firewood available for Coconino County residents

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Firewood will be available to Coconino County residents free of charge this week.

The Arizona Daily Sun says wood cut from trees removed near Fort Tuthill County Park will be up for grabs starting Monday.

Officials say the trees were cut down as part of a realignment project for Highway 89A.

They say the ponderosa pine firewood is precut and stacked just east of the grandstands at the county park.

Residents can pick up the wood between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. through Friday.

There is no fee or limit on the amount people can take.

The county has already distributed free firewood to low-income families in the Flagstaff and Williams areas.

Officials say wood permits for transport are obtainable at the county Parks and Recreation office.
