Coconino National Forest Fire Managers To Burn In Two Areas North And South Of Flagstaff Wednesday

The Coconino National Forest plans to continue two prescribed burns this week. Nearly 11-hundred acres is planned to be burned Wednesday on the Horseshoe Burn project, located 14 miles north of Flagstaff, just north of the San Francisco Peaks. This is a broadcast maintenance burn, which usually means fire has recently been through the area, which tends to lead to less smoke since forest fuels won’t be as thick or built up over time. This burn is only expected to last a day. More burning will take place Wednesday and Thursday on the Sawmill Burn project about six miles southeast or Mormon Lake and east of Hutch Mountain. About four-thousand acres is planned for burning and it will take over two days. Smoke will generally travel northeast and may settle in the Kinnikinick Lake area as well as further east in the Long Lake area. Smoke may settle between Lake Mary Road and Winslow if east winds persist.
