Since snow is expected within the next 48 hours, Coconino National Forest fire managers will be assisting Coconino County with a green waste burn at the Willard Springs transfer station tomorrow morning immediately west of Interstate 17 at the Willard Springs exit.

Fire managers will also be burning slash piles over the next several days at different locations throughout the Flagstaff Ranger District, which include:

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Phoenix District is planning to conduct a 100-acre prescribed burn of hazardous fuels within the Agua Fria National Monument, for one to three days between January 19 – 21.

The BLM will choose the best days to ignite the fire when the weather conditions are most favorable.  The burn will reduce encroaching juniper into grasslands, and improve the habitat of the pronghorn antelope.

Verde Ranger District fire managers plan to continue fuels treatments on Mingus Mountain starting Tuesday, January 16th through Thursday, January 18th; weather conditions permitting.    Benefits from these treatment help to reduce hazardous fuels adjacent to the wildland urban interface and increase ecosystem and community resilience. 

Mingus Mountain Piles – Piles are located at the end of Forest Road 104A, approximately 2 miles east of Mingus Summit Day Use.

Bradshaw Ranger District fire managers plan to continue fuels treatment in the Prescott Basin on Tuesday, January 9th through Friday, January 12th; weather conditions permitting.    Benefits from these treatment help to reduce hazardous fuels adjacent to the wildland urban interface and increase ecosystem and community resilience.  

Spruce Mountain Piles – Piles are located approximately 5 miles south and east of Prescott near the community of Groom Creek (T13N, R2W, S31).   

100 acres of slash piles are scheduled for burning on Thursday and Friday of this week on the Tusayan Ranger District. Crews plan to ignite 50 acres each day and complete this project by late afternoon on Friday. The unit to be treated is located approximately 1 mile west of the Grand Canyon Airport near Tusayan.

This project is a continuation of the removal of hazardous fuels surrounding rural areas and developed communities located within and adjacent to the Kaibab National Forest.
