Pile Burning Planned East of Williams
Incident: Williams Ranger Dist. Projects Prescribed Fire
WILLIAMS, Ariz. - Kaibab National Forest fire crews plan to burn slash piles Tuesday, December 6, on the Williams Ranger District about 10 miles east of Williams, near Pine Aire subdivision. If appropriate conditions exist and Arizona Department of Environmental Quality approves the request, crews may ignite approximately 175 acres of piles.
The forecast shows sunny skies and moderate northeast winds Tuesday. Smoke will be visible south of I-40 and may settle in Garland Prairie overnight. There is a chance smoke may reach Sycamore Canyon.
The goals of thinning and pile burning are to reduce fire hazard and return important nutrients to the soil. For more information about prescribed fires, please call Punky Moore, Fire Information Officer, 928-635-5653 or call the recorded information line at 928-635-8311.
