Health Impacts

Fire managers for the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Arizona Strip District are planning to burn slash debris piles located 65 miles south of St. George, Utah near Mt. Trumbull. Depending upon conditions, the burns will begin early March 2019 and last through mid-April 2019 if weather and fuel conditions allow.  The burns are intended to decrease future wildfire risk and protect cultural and natural resources.
