Prescribed Fire Completed on
Tusayan Ranger District
TUSAYAN, Ariz. – Crews completed a 229-acre section of the Flying J Prescribed Fire on the Tusayan Ranger District Friday, April 20. The project is located two miles southwest of Tusayan and west of the Grand Canyon Airport.
Crews observed light to moderate activity as the fire consumed dead and down material within the project boundaries. Quentin Johnson, Flying J Burn Boss and Tusayan Ranger District Fire Management Officer, commented, “Today’s work is part of an ongoing effort to reduce hazardous fuels, enhance wildlife habitat and improve forest health. We appreciate the assistance we received from fire crews from all districts of the Forest, Grand Canyon National Park and Tusayan Fire Department to help us meet our objectives on this burn.”
Smoke drifted west and south of the unit during the burn as light northeast winds transported smoke away from Grand Canyon Airport and State Highway 64. Ignitions were completed by early afternoon.
Crews are on scene today monitoring and patrolling the burn. Photos are posted on Flickr at www.flickr.com/kaibabnationalforest. For more information, please contact Punky Moore (928-635-5653).
