On July 15, 2015 fire staff from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Arizona Strip District responded to a smoke report near Mt. Trumbull and Potato Valley on the BLM Arizona Strip. The lightning-caused High Meadow Fire is located approximately 55 miles southeast of St. George, Utah. The fire is 208 acres in size and is in the Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument portion of the BLM Arizona Strip.
Fire managers for the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Arizona Strip District plan to burn piles resulting from road thinning work.
The prescribed burn is located 65 miles south of St. George, Utah, near Mt. Trumbull on the Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument. The burns are planned to begin around the end of April and last through mid-May 2015 if weather and fuel conditions allow. The burns are intended to decrease future wildfire risk and protect cultural and natural resources.
