Ponderosa Pine Slash piles
Fire managers plan to continue burning piles on the Tusayan and Williams ranger districts of the Kaibab National Forest as conditions allow. Slash piles are the result of forest restoration efforts, and the goal of burning them is to further reduce fuels that could feed high-intensity wildfire.
Williams Ranger District fire managers plan to burn about 114 acres of piles just west of Wright Hill on Friday this week. Several units are scheduled in the area south of Government Hill in the weeks ahead. Minimal to light smoke impacts are anticipated and should be highly localized based on the small size of the piles.
No road or trail closures are expected with the pile burning planned for the Williams Ranger District.
|Projected Incident Activity|
Crews on the Williams Ranger District will be moving to and area north of Parks to continue with pile burning near Government hill beginning Friday this week
