Scattered monsoonal shower activity was widespread over the Kaibab Plateau this weekend, yet almost no monsoonal activity occurred over the lightning-caused Pine Hollow wildfire. As a result, fire activity remained moderate and continued to slowly move north throughout the weekend.
Crews completed blacklining operations around the Little Mountain Southwest Experimental Garden Array (SEGA) garden on Saturday, which is a strategy used in wildland firefighting to help protect a sensitive resource.
Although monsoonal precipitation continued today on the Kaibab Plateau, the lightning-caused Pine Hollow wildfire remained moderately active. Fire remained active in heavy fuels and stump holes while relatively low flame lengths creeped through light fuels in the open pine.
Precipitation has been widespread over the Kaibab Plateau resulting in very little growth on the Pine Hollow wildfire since Monday’s fire update. Expected actions for the next 24-hour period are to continue monitoring fire behavior as more monsoonal precipitation is forecasted over the next 96 hours.
