Tentative Prescribed Fire Plans for the
Week of September 13
Flagstaff, AZ – Pending favorable
conditions, fire specialists on the Coconino National Forest are tentatively
planning several prescribed fire projects the week of September 10.
Prescribed fire activity continues to be
dependent on personnel availability, weather – including ventilation conditions,
and approval from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (www.azdeq.gov).
Two lightning-caused fires are currently being managed for resource objectives.
Fire managers will adjust prescribed burn plans according to resources
assigned to, and the smoke produced by, the Ranger and Weir fires.
For Monday, September 13
Valley Project – approximately 140 acres located between Chimney Springs
and Schultz Pass Road, north of Flagstaff. The majority of smoke will disperse
to the northeast with the predicted winds. Residual smoke will likely settle
in Fort Valley, Cheshire and Rio De Flag.
Clear Creek Project – approximately 730 acres west of Blue Ridge Reservoir,
south of Hwy 87 and Forest Road 751, adjacent to the Ranger Fire. Smoke
will disperse to the north. Residual smoke may impact Clear Creek units
