Pile burning planned Feb. 2-3 in the Prescott Basin
Fire managers on the Bradshaw Ranger District plan to burn approximately 300 acres of piles on Saturday, Feb. 2 and Sunday Feb. 3, weather conditions permitting, 4 miles south of the Lynx Lake Recreation Area, on the east side of Walker Road (R1W, T13N, S33).
The purpose of this project is to reduce hazardous fuels following thinning and fuelwood removal activities. Reducing hazardous fuels will help reduce the threat of high severity, high intensity wildfire to the public, adjacent private property and communities. Burning of debris left over from brush-crush and thinning projects require moisture in the surrounding vegetation and typically produces much lighter smoke than broadcast burning.
In the interest of safety, forest visitors are reminded to obey all traffic signs and use caution when traveling in the vicinity of the prescribed fire burn units as firefighters and fire-related traffic will be in the area.
All prescribed fires activity is dependent on the availability of personnel and equipment, weather, fuels and conditions that minimize smoke impacts as best as possible and approval from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality azdeq.gov. Or call 928-443-8000.
