Williams Ranger District

The 4039 acre Boulin Fire on the Williams Ranger District of the Kaibab National Forest has exhibited no additional growth and is not expected to increase in size. This lightning caused fire was very successful in meeting the overall intent to reintroduce fire back into the ponderosa pine landscape for the purpose of restoring forest health, and ensuring long term sustainability.

The Boulin Fire on the Williams Ranger District is moving steadily as warm weather influences fire behavior. Unchanging warm temperatures and low relative humidity have persisted allowing fire to carry through the available fuels inside the planning area. Weather forecasts indicate the fire will potentially spread to the southwest perimeter later this week reaching its full potential.



Start Date: August 5, 2019.

Cause: Lightning.

Fire officials on the Williams Ranger District of the Kaibab National Forest are currently managing a new fire start called the Boulin Fire. The Boulin Fire, discovered on August 6, was caused by lightning and has grown to approximately 10 acres. It is located near the junction of forest roads 141 and 713 approximately 9 miles north of Interstate 40 at the northwest corner of Spring Valley.

Fire managers on the south zone of the Kaibab National Forest will begin springtime burning on both the Williams and Tusayan Ranger Districts beginning Thursday of this week and will likely burn through the weekend and into the following week ahead.
