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