Bureau of Land Management

The Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Safford Field Office and Gila District Fire Management Office will conduct a one-day prescribed burn on the south rim of Aravaipa Canyon on May 13. The Grover Burn will cover approximately 2,430 acres of BLM land near Klondyke, south of Aravaipa Canyon and east of Turkey Creek, pending appropriate weather conditions.

Visitors with valid permits for the Aravaipa Canyon Wilderness Area east trailhead will be provided access. Some area roads will be temporarily closed to other users to allow for fire operations.

Fire managers for the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Arizona Strip District plan to burn piles resulting from road thinning work.

The prescribed burn is located 65 miles south of St. George, Utah, near Mt. Trumbull on the Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument. The burns are planned to begin around the end of April and last through mid-May 2015 if weather and fuel conditions allow. The burns are intended to decrease future wildfire risk and protect cultural and natural resources.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) plans to conduct a prescribed burn starting Feb. 5 in the southern portion of the Mittry Lake Wildlife Area. The start date and time for the burning operation depends on weather and may be delayed until appropriate conditions occur.

Due to public safety, the Betty’s Kitchen Road will be closed for public use starting at 6 p.m. on Feb. 4 through 6. If the burn is delayed, the road will be closed the night before the prescribed burn and open up when the burn is controlled and fire personnel have exited the area. 

On Friday, August 1, 2014, Bureau of Land Management (BLM) lands administered by the Lake Havasu and Yuma Field Offices will go from Stage 2 to Stage 1 fire restrictions. 

“Fire weather conditions have improved to lift Stage 2 restrictions in our area because of higher relative humidity and even some scattered rain; however, conditions have not improved enough to cancel fire restrictions completely," stated Assistant Fire Management Officer James Stewart.

The public is reminded that the following acts are prohibited until further notice:
