This incident is no longer being updated.

Continuing monsoonal moisture has allowed fire officials on the Kaibab National Forest to consider two new lightning caused wildfires on the Tusayan Ranger District for the potential of benefiting forest health objectives and community protection.

The Gallo Fire, approximately 4 miles northeast of Red Butte is one tenth of an acre in size and is burning in a single dead pine snag which is nestled in a ponderosa pine type. The area has been receiving moisture but is receptive to low intensity ground fire at this time. The intent is to allow it to burn as it would naturally over the landscape providing benefits to forest health.
