Mother Nature Helping Firefighters Help Battle The Kane Fire Burning Near Jacob Lake

Fire managers on the Kane Fire burning on the Kaibab National Forest near the North Rim received help from Mother Nature Wednesday. The fire has burned nearly 29-hundred acres and is 11 miles south of Highway 89A on the North Kaibab Ranger District. Officials say increased cloud cover, cooler temperatures, and higher humidity is helping to suppress fire activity. Wednesday morning, smoke was less visible over the fire area due to lighter winds. As temperatures increased in the afternoon, some smoke was visible along the fire perimeter but remained minimal. A reconnaissance flight detected some isolated pockets of heat, with the majority of the activity on the southeast corner of the fire area Wednesday. The Kane Fire is still zero percent contained.
