Coconino National Forest Fire Crews Continue Burning Operations On The Cecil Fire Southwest Of Flagstaff

Coconino National Forest Fire crews continue to work on the Cecil Fire. Crews burned on the fire for the second straight day Wednesday. The Cecil Fire is a lightning-caused fire that started at around 4:10 p.m. on September 19th and has burned 500 acres. The fire is located southwest of Flagstaff, to the northwest of the switchbacks of Oak Creek Canyon and west of Highway 89A. Fire managers are planning to burn 21-hundred acres within the next several days as crews use the fire to improve forest resiliency. Firing operations began Wednesday on the Sill Fire burning in the Blue Ridge area. Forest officials say smoke impacts from the Cecil Fire should be reduced in the coming days, but may return next week if conditions allow for more burning.
