Skousen Fire on Tusayan Ranger
TUSAYAN, Ariz. – A new fire was
detected on the Tusayan Ranger District of the Kaibab National Forest after
thunderstorms and lightning passed over the area last weekend. The lightning-caused
Skousen Fire is located 16 miles southeast of Tusayan and reported at two
acres. Suppression actions are being taken on the Skousen Fire.
The fire was called in by the Red
Butte Lookout on Monday, June 14. Upon evaluation of the current and expected
weather conditions, fire activity in the region and growth potential, fire
managers decided to implement a suppression strategy.
Sixteen personnel are assigned
to the incident. A fireline will be constructed around the perimeter and
smoldering timber, brush and grass will be extinguished.
There is a fire weather watch in
the forecast for Wednesday, due to low relative humidity and strong winds.
