Agua Fria National Monument

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Phoenix District is planning to conduct a 100-acre prescribed burn of hazardous fuels within the Agua Fria National Monument, for one to three days between January 19 – 21.

The BLM will choose the best days to ignite the fire when the weather conditions are most favorable.  The burn will reduce encroaching juniper into grasslands, and improve the habitat of the pronghorn antelope.

The Brooklyn Fire is burning in the Tonto National Forest and the Agua Fria National Monument in Yavapai County, Arizona. The change to Complex includes the incorporation of 2 lightning caused fire in the general area of the Brooklyn Fire on the Tonto National Forest. They are the Bull Fire (S/SE of the Brooklyn Fire) and Cedar Fire (E/SE of the Brooklyn Fire). These 2 fires are not a threat to structures at this time and are in remote areas with difficult access.

Agency Jurisdiction: Tonto National Forest, Bureau of Land Management
