Williams Ranger District
WILLIAMS, Ariz. – Kaibab National
Forest fire managers are requesting approval to burn slash piles Thursday,
December 16 on the Williams Ranger District. If appropriate conditions
exist and Arizona Department of Environmental Quality approves the request,
approximately 40 acres of piles may be ignited about four miles southeast
of Williams near Dogtown Lake.
Managers expect smoke to travel
northeast of the project and settle in low-lying areas overnight. Smoke
may be visible from Williams, County Road 73, Dogtown Lake and surrounding
locations. The current moist conditions will help prevent fire from spreading
into vegetation around the piles.
Piles are made of stacked tree
slash cut during thinning projects. Burning the piles returns important
nutrients to the soil, completing fire’s regenerative cycle. The goals
of thinning and pile burning are to reduce fire hazard and protect communities.
For more information, please call
Punky Moore, Fire Information Officer, 928-635-5653.
