Burn piles may begin tomorrow

Nov. 29 - The Kaibab National Forest plans to burn piles in three locations on the Williams Ranger District tomorrow if it snows. Piles will be ignited in the following locations -

• Moonset Pit - Fire managers plan to burn one large pile of woody debris in the cinder pit, which is located on National Forest near the Parks community just off old Route 66. The woody debris resulted from the opening of the pit throughout the year to provide local residents the opportunity to dispose of natural, forest materials from their private property in order to reduce wildfire risk.

• Three Sisters Pit - Fire managers plan to burn one large pile of woody debris in the cinder pit, which is located just northwest of Williams off Forest Road 124. The woody debris resulted from the opening of the pit throughout the year to provide local residents the opportunity to dispose of natural, forest materials from their private property in order to reduce wildfire risk.

• Dogtown - Fire managers plan to burn up to 207 acres of scattered piles near the Woods Subdivision just south of Interstate 40. While smoke impacts are expected to be light, residents in the Woods Subdivision may notice some smoke settling during the overnight hours.

These piles burns will only take place if precipitation is received.
