Incident Description
Prescribed fire projects usually commence during the early spring months in northern Arizona.

Prescribed fire is important part of forest restoration projects planned in accordance with the Forest Service’s 10-year Wildfire Crisis Strategy. Prescribed fire and mechanical thinning work together to remove fuels such as woody debris and logging scraps from the forest floor during times of opportune weather.

Fire managers make every effort to effectively plan and execute burn plans at times when weather allows for smoke impacts to be minimized and transport up and over communities.
