Pile Burning Planned on Williams
WILLIAMS, Ariz. – As a continuation
of our prescribed fire program, fire crews may burn slash piles on the
Williams Ranger District Monday, Oct. 18. Depending on conditions and Arizona
Department of Environmental Quality approval, approximately 180 acres of
slash piles are available for burning three miles south of Kendrick Mountain
near Government Prairie.
piles will be ignited if adequate precipitation falls on the forest before
Monday. The forecast shows a storm system approaching the area with increasing
chances of showers and thunderstorms.
Managers expect smoke to drift
north of the piles and to settle in Government Prairie overnight. We understand
that smoke created while we accomplish our prescribed burning projects
impacts people in our community. We appreciate your tolerance to
some smoke now in order to reduce the future occurrence of severe wildfires.

National Forest burning, please contact Punky Moore (928-635-5653).
