Fire behavior on Monday was less erratic than the previous day. The Rafael Fire was active with considerably less growth than the day before. At 24,064 acres, the Rafael fire spans the Prescott, Kaibab, and Coconino National Forests as well as the Yavapai and Coconino County lines. Reconnaissance from the air is the best approach for fire managers to assess fire management strategies in the remote terrain in and around Sycamore Canyon Wilderness. Steep canyons walls and dense vegetation are driving the options for fire management.
