With the weather staying temperate and dry, Coconino National Forest firefighters are planning to conduct prescribed burns next week near the Fort Valley area and Clints Well area if weather conditions and staffing remain favorable.
A prescribed burn project is planned tonight on the Coconino National Forest in the Mogollon Rim Ranger District, approximately seven miles southeast of Mormon Lake.
Weather and ventilation is forecasted tomorrow to transport and disperse smoke toward the northeast, which may impact Winslow.
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, so this burn could be canceled if conditions are not suitable.
