Officials are managing a small fire about 10 miles south of Williams to reduce accumulated forest litter and fuels, maintain fire in a fire-adapted ecosystem, increase firefighter and visitor safety, and protect cultural resources and wildlife habitat.

Lightening started the Mud Fire on July 29 near the Summit Mountain and Little Pine Flat area. The fire is currently 1.4 acres.

Because of recent precipitation, the fire is growing slowly in ponderosa pine and oak with smoldering and creeping fire behavior. Fire crews are continually monitoring the fire, which is spreading naturally at this time.

"A slight drying trend is predicted throughout the week and we are anticipating slow growth each day," said Fire Management Officer, James Pettit.

Smoke impacts should be minimal, if any, to the areas near Summit Mountain and Little Pine Flat. However, varying monsoonal precipitation and winds are likely to change fire behavior and growth over the next several days. Forecasted winds continue to be west southwest at 5-15 mph with gusts as high as 21 mph.

More information is available from Fire Information Officer Holly Krake at (928) 635-5653.
