FREDONIA, Arizona — North Zone fire managers are making preparations to begin pile burning on the North Kaibab Ranger District, depending on weather and fuel moisture levels in the upcoming weeks. The goal of the pile burning is to remove fuels within the forest in order to lessen the potential intensity of a wildfire.
Specifically, fire crews plan to burn 325 acres near the intersection of Forest Service Road 271 and FSR 206B, which is located near Stina Point. Crews also plan to treat 98 acres near the intersection FSR 22 and FSR 422D, which is located in the general vicinity of the Dry Park Lookout Tower.
All prescribed burning on the Kaibab National Forest is subject to approval by the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality and appropriate weather conditions.
