Coconino National Forest

Coconino National Forest issued a temporary closure order July 17 which is now expanding into more units of this active forest thinning project near the southwest base of Mount Elden in order to keep the public safe from forest harvesting operations.

The Elden Base Project, a 642-acre subset of the overall Flagstaff Watershed Protection Project (FWPP), will be completed in 13 units or segments. The active units will be closed to the public while the inactive units will be open for public use.

Firefighters on the Coconino National Forest received some help from the monsoon thunderstorms in northern Arizona this week.

The monsoon put spotty rain on the Platypus, Rhino and Surveyor Fires over the weekend, but made up for it Monday with heavier precipitation and may add even more moisture Tuesday with large thunderstorm cells in the area.
