Released: 10/30/2017

Flagstaff, Arizona — Two prescribed burn projects are planned this week on the Coconino National Forest, which will include the Flagstaff and Mogollon Rim ranger districts.

Favorable weather and ventilation is forecasted during daytime hours, with winds predicted to transport and disperse smoke toward the northeast.

Prescribed burns are always dependent upon weather and wind conditions, which can differ drastically across the forest. Prescribed burns are also subject to approval from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality, so all or some of these burns could be canceled if conditions are not suitable.
