Kaibab National Forest Prepares
for Prescribed Burn
on Tusayan Ranger District
TUSAYAN, Ariz. – Kaibab National
Forest fire managers are requesting approval from Arizona Department of
Environmental Quality for prescribed burning Monday, May 3 on the Tusayan
Ranger District. Depending on conditions, project areas under consideration
for burning are Tusayan East (87 acres) or Tusayan South (102 acres).
The location of the Tusayan East
unit is ½ mile southeast of the Tusayan Ranger Station and the location
of Tusayan South is about two miles west of Highway 64, on the south end
of Grand Canyon Airport. Fire specialists will determine which unit to
burn depending on existing and forecasted wind, temperature, and humidity.
Smoke will be visible in Tusayan and along Highway 64. Light overnight
smoke may linger in Tusayan and outlying areas.
These projects are part of an ongoing
effort to ensure that future fires in the area remain at a lower level
of intensity, thereby protecting the community and improving forest health.
managers work closely with Arizona Department of Environmental Quality
during the implementation of these projects. In our efforts to protect
the community from the threat of future severe fires, we appreciate the
community’s tolerance of some smoke during our prescribed burns. For
more information, please contact Punky Moore (928-635-5653).
