A prescribed burn project has begun this morning on the Coconino National Forest which will produce smoke south of Kendrick Mountain.
The Horseshoe Wild Bill Project moved to the scheduled today. The project is three miles south of Kendrick Mountain, near U.S. Highway 180.
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 as they are coordinated across multiple forests.
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.
