Kendrick Park

Coconino National Forest firefighters and Summit Fire Department have responded to the Kendrick fire southeast of Kendrick Park in grasslands burning 335-acres of forest land before the forward progress was stopped this afternoon.

Approximately 30 firefighters worked in the grasslands to stop the progress of this wildfire. Chapel of the Holy Dove is in the area of the wildfire. Firefighting crews ensured its safety by using fire to burn the fuels between the spreading wildfire and the Chapel. The backburning successfully kept damaging heat and flames away from the Chapel.
