Two prescribed burn projects begin this morning on the Coconino National Forest which will produce smoke south of Kendrick Mountain and also near Clint’s Well.

The Horseshoe Wild Bill project (16 miles northwest of the Flagstaff) and Blue Ridge Urban Interface project (north of Clint’s Well) were both scheduled to begin Monday and Tuesday, but the projects were postponed until yesterday due to unfavorable weather and wind conditions. Today the projects continue and will finish up the Coconino National Forest’s prescribed burning for this week.

Two prescribed burn projects will begin this morning on the Coconino National Forest which will produce smoke north of the San Francisco Peaks and also north of Clint’s Well.

The Horseshoe Slate project (north of the San Francisco Peaks) and Blue Ridge Urban Interface project (north of Clint’s Well) were both scheduled to begin Monday and Tuesday, but the projects were postponed due to unfavorable weather and wind conditions.

An additional prescribed burn project—Horseshoe Wild Bill North—is planned for tomorrow, but only if the Horseshoe Slate project is completed today.

Several prescribed burn projects are being planned for next week on the Coconino National Forest, which will include the Flagstaff and Mogollon Rim ranger districts.

Uncertain weather patterns and winds forecasted on the Coconino National Forest next week make it difficult to predict which prescribed burn area is the most favorable for operations. So fire managers have given a list of potential burn areas likely to fit the burning prescription. The Coconino National forest will update the public before operations begin each day.

A prescribed burn project is planned tonight on the Coconino National Forest in the Mogollon Rim Ranger District, approximately seven miles southeast of Mormon Lake.

Weather and ventilation is forecasted tomorrow to transport and disperse smoke toward the northeast, which may impact Winslow.

Prescribed burns are always dependent upon weather and wind conditions, which can differ drastically across the forest. Prescribed burns are also subject to approval from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality, so this burn could be canceled if conditions are not suitable.
