Pile Burns will continue through this weekend


Flagstaff, AZ – Fire specialists on the Coconino National Forest will continue burning slash piles through this weekend.

        Mountainaire Project Area, up to 35 acres per day Saturday, Sunday and Monday; north of Lake Mary Road between J.W. Powell Blvd and Canyon Vista campground. Smoke may be noticeable in the immediate area during ignition, but will be light and will disperse quickly.

By igniting relatively small areas each day, smoke impact is minimized. Slash is leftover branches and small diameter trees from forest restoration projects.

All prescribed fire activity is dependent on personnel availability, weather – including ventilation conditions, and approval from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (www.azdeq.gov).

The public can obtain prescribed fire information via the following:
