Upper Beaver Creek Project

Coconino National Forest fire managers have scaled back several burn projects this week due to weather conditions and resource availability, while focusing on one prescribed burn in the Flagstaff area and another near Buck Mountain tomorrow.

The Upper Lake Mary Project and Upper Beaver Creek Project will begin tomorrow morning while winds and conditions are favorable. Other prescribed burns that were planned for Wednesday, such as the A1 Mountain Project and Kendrick Project, have been cancelled until conditions are better.

Coconino National Forest fire managers have planned several prescribed burns next week throughout the forest due to predicted favorable weather and wind conditions. These burns could be cancelled or postponed if conditions change.



A1 Mountain Project

When: Planned ignition will be Tuesday and Wednesday (April 17, 18). Ignitions typically begin around 8 a.m.

Fire managers are planning several prescribed burn projects this week near Flagstaff that will produce visible smoke plumes close to town, likely starting Thursday (Oct. 27). Not all projects listed below will be pursued this week, but weather conditions will dictate which projects are initiated by fire managers, as one area may be suitable for burning while another area is not.

Fire managers are planning several prescribed burn projects next week, likely starting Monday (Oct. 17).  These prescribed burns are conducted in order to help protect communities from severe wildfires by reducing forest fuel accumulation in strategic areas around northern Arizona communities, and also reintroduce fire into the Ponderosa pine ecosystem for restoration purposes.
