Grand Canyon National Park

National Park Service (NPS) and U.S. Forest Service (USFS) fire managers, working together as the North Zone Interagency Fire Management Program, anticipate initiating a prescribed fire treatment this fall as weather and fuel moisture conditions allow near the boundary line between the North Kaibab Ranger District of the Kaibab NF and the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park. The South Rim Fire Management Program is also planning a prescribed fire treatment this fall working with the Tusayan Ranger District of the Kaibab National Forest.

Fire managers on the Fuller Fire are strengthening containment lines on the west side of the fire. Selective thinning along Forest Roads 610 and 611 is intended to protect the DeMotte Park area from any fire encroachment from the Fuller Fire.

As the lightning-started Fuller Fire slowly creeps west, firefighters plan to ignite along the 610 and 611 roads to create a buffer to protect infrastructure and heritage sites. This buffer will allow the Fuller Fire to burn naturally to the west without threatening the DeMotte Park area.
