prescribed_fire_smallDue to favorable conditions, fire managers may implement prescribed fire as soon as Monday September 30, in an area 4 miles southeast of Williams, AZ along County Road 73. At approximately 3200 acres, the burn will be the largest single prescribed burn of the fall on the Williams Ranger District. All prescribed fire activity is dependent on regional Forest Service approval, personnel availability, weather – including winds and ventilation, and approval from the ADEQ www.azdeq.gov.

While smoke production will likely be significant, managers hope to limit impact by conducting all burning operations over a 4 to 5 day time period. Comments from Fire Information Officer, Holly Krake,

“Smoke is a trade-off for having a healthy forest in a fire adapted ecosystem. By reaching out to thousands of people in our local communities, we hope to give as much advance notice as possible and minimize negative smoke impacts”.
