The Boulin Fire on the Williams Ranger District of the Kaibab National Forest has grown to 756 acres benefiting forest health, reducing hazardous fuels, and improving protection of the communities within the urban interface.
As warm temperatures and dry conditions endure, the 30 acre Boulin Fire on the Williams Ranger District is actively growing and is expected to continue spreading favorably over the next few days.
Coconino County Public Health Services District (CCPHSD) officials confirmed that fleas collected in the Red Lake area, approximately five miles northeast of Williams, tested positive for plague (Yersinia pestis). The tests were conducted by the Center for Pathogen and Microbiome Institute at Northern Arizona University.
CCPHSD is notifying area residents. The burrows are being treated and the area will be closely monitored to determine if further action is required.
