North Zone Pine Hollow Fire Update: Growth continues

 

Fredonia, Ariz., July 21, 2017 — For Immediate Release. Today North Zone firefighters, led by a Type IV Incident Commander, briefed North Kaibab District staff about current and expected fire behavior of the lightning-caused Pine Hollow wildfire.

 

With less than one-foot flame lengths actively creeping along and consuming litter in all directions, immediate actions for crews were to identify containment lines while minimizing risk to firefighters and providing the opportunity for the fire to spread naturally through the pine in a controlled manner that will benefit forest ecosystem health by removing heavy fuel accumulations within the vicinity of Little Mountain.

 

  • Name: Pine Hollow Wildfire
  • Started: Wednesday, July 19, 2017
  • Cause: Lightning
  • Location: The fire is west of Big Springs Field Station in the vicinity of Little Mountain on the North Kaibab Ranger District of the Kaibab National Forest.
  • Size: ~ 30 acres
  • Fuels: The wildfire is burning in ponderosa pine fuel type and debris left from the Pipeline Fire of 2009.
  • Resources: 2 Type-6 engines and 1 Type-3 engine
  • Expected Actions: Continue monitoring fire behavior, identify containment lines and values at risk.
