Major Arizona Incidents
Kaibab NF South Zone Rx Fire (Prescribed Fire)
on January 15, 2020 at 7:46 pm
Pile burning activity is occurring at multiple locations to the south and east of the City of Williams producing smoke that will be visible from various outlying locations around the greater Williams area. Burning is expected to continue through the remainder of this week as conditions allow. There are no road or trail closures expected with the pile burns planned for the Williams Ranger District. Fire managers will continue to seek opportunities throughout the winter to conduct pile burns as conditions allow. Above average moisture levels accompanied by snow has presented model opportunities for crews on the Kaibab National Forest to continue implementing this type of fuels reduction work. Pile burns typically occur during the winter months when forest debris can be consumed safely with little to no control problems. This method is especially effective in steeper more difficult terrain when snow limits the potential for unwanted fire spread on the ground.

Flagstaff Watershed Protection Project on Mount Elden is a large focus of this winters pile burns. There are also a lot of piles to burn on the Mogollon Rim RD because of the Cragin Protection
