Coconino NF 2018 Pile, Prescribed Burns News Release

Pile burn planned for Friday or Monday

Incident: Coconino NF 2018 Pile, Prescribed Burns Prescribed Fire
Released: 2/22/2018

With snow on the ground and more headed to northern Arizona, Coconino National Forest fire managers plan to burn slash piles near Mountainaire starting Friday.

The large piles built by machinery during the Howard cutting project are sitting on approximately 300 acres near Forest Road 235A immediately east of Mountainaire, 7 miles south of Flagstaff. Smoke from the pile burn is expected to disperse toward the east/northeast and may impact motorists along Interstate 17, as well as residents of Mountainaire and Flagstaff.
The piles may continue to burn and smolder for several days after being ignited. Flagstaff Ranger District firefighters will continue to monitor the piles for the next couple of weeks to ensure the piles remain within the prescription.
