PHOENIX (AP) — Many sections of the Tonto National Forest will be closed starting 6 a.m. Thursday because of extreme fire danger due to dry conditions.

Taiga Rohrer, Tonto’s fire management officer, said new fire starts have become increasingly difficult to control and the closure is the best option to deal with the fire danger conditions.

Authorities said wildfires have burned more than 350 square miles (906 square kilometers) of the forest already this year, caused by vehicle fires, sparks from tow chains or flat tires.

They said hot temperatures following a wet winter has produced an abundance of dry brush and grass in the forest.

The closure means all National Forest System lands contained within the Tonto are closed to the public except Roosevelt Lake, Bartlett Reservoir, Canyon Lake, Saguaro Lake and Lower Salt River plus the Tortilla Flat Restaurant and Roosevelt Lakeview Mobile Home Park.

Mums show how to use old cots to make clever planting walls in the garden for free

THE current trend for upcycling old household items continues to take the internet by storm, with the latest trend seeing savvy parents turn old cots into stunning garden features.

That's right, people are turning the slats from old cots into stunning way to display plants outside.

The ingenious idea has been replicated by several parents online, who have shared pictures of their finished planets on Facebook.

Taking to the Facebook group Extreme Budget DIY and Life Hacks, one mum proudly showed off photos of her new wall feature.

The chuffed mum wrote: "Turned the side of my son's old cot into a wall planter."
"Lightly sanded the frame then spray painted the cot and plant baskets."

Rather than throwing away the wooden frame, this clever hack gives the old cot a new lease of life in the garden.

Another proud DIY fan told Facebook users she had sanded down the cot before using a lick of Frenchic's Cool Beans paint for a pop of colour.

She then added a handful of 99p IKEA Sunnersta pots, which have handy hooks on the back, to complete the transformation.

Another user sang the praises of IKEA's 99p containers, which come with a hook built into the back and are usually used in the kitchen. These pots come in two shades: white and green.

Shoppers can nab a similar style from Wilko for just £1.

Another savvy mum revealed she completed the look with a lick of leftover grey paint previously used to paint the fence and some multicoloured metal pots from Amazon. 

For more amazing DIY projects, this woman has  gone viral after turning a cupboard into a mini sleeping area for her stepdaughter using B&M buys.

As we reported earlier, one shopper revealed how she bagged £30 of food for just £3 thanks to a supermarket trick.

And Mrs Hinch has been raving about these super cheap £1 undies from Primark.
