Incident Photo for the Kaibab NF South Zone Rx Fire

Burning has been re-scheduled to resume on Saturday May 1 and could continue into the forthcoming week as weather allows. Recent moisture has influenced the overall conditions improving the ability to meet fuels reduction objectives more thoroughly with less risk.

Kaibab National Forest fire managers will be continuing work on the Reed Prescribed Fire project located on the Tusayan Ranger District approximately 3 miles northeast of the town of Tusayan beginning Monday of next week.
Crews will begin ignitions on a 117-acre unit near the junction of forest roads 9121G and 9121GA northeast of the Ten X Ranch. Additional units may be burned into the week ahead providing weather conditions remain favorable to achieve desired effects that meet land management objectives.
