Pile burning planned on Tusayan RD
TUSAYAN, Ariz. - The Tusayan Ranger District of the Kaibab National Forest plans to burn about 20 acres of piles this Thursday and Friday, March 7 and 8, depending on weather conditions.
The piles are located near Grandview Lookout and Ten X Campground. Light smoke may be visible during ignition operations.
The piles are hand-stacked from prior thinning operations. Pile burning will reduce the amount of fuel in the forest and minimize risk of high-intensity wildfire in the future.
