Burn project is planned for this week near Mountainaire

February 12th, 2018 at 9:22 AM

The Howard Burn Project encompasses approximately 875 acres and is located 1 mile southeast of Mountainaire (35° 4’44.49″N, 111°38’13.72″W). Within this broadcast burn area there are also slash piles which will burn and may smoke for several days within the prescription area. Fire managers are planning to use Forest Roads, 9484T, 235F, 9420R, 762B and local topography as area boundaries.

The project is scheduled to begin sometime after 9 a.m. and should be completed within three days.

Smoke is predicted to move toward the east and northeast which may impact local communities such as East Flagstaff and motorists on Lake Mary Road. Cooling temperatures in the evenings may cause smoke to settle in the Lake Mary area, Doney Park, Walnut Canyon and drain down nearby canyons.

Prescribed burns are always dependent upon approval from Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ), weather and wind conditions, this burn could be canceled if conditions are not suitable.
