The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Arizona Strip District is planning to burn slash debris located 30 miles south of Fredonia, Ariz. in the Kanab Creek riparian corridor. The burns will begin early March 2019 and last through late March 2019, depending upon fuel and weather conditions. The intent of these treatments is to restore and enhance wildlife habitat by removing invasive tamarisk from the Kanab Creek watershed.
Prescribed burns have strict weather-related and environmental factors that must meet prior to ignition. BLM Arizona Strip fire personnel will monitor on-site conditions and manage prescribed fire activity, before, during and after ignition operations. Smoke may be present during the length of the project in this remote area, and managed in accordance with the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality regulations.
No closures anticipated but public access may be restricted during ignition and periods of active fire to ensure public safety. Signs will be posted to notify the public. Use caution when traveling in the area of the fire.
