Control burn scheduled for Tuesday
300 acres to be treated
WILLIAMS - Fire managers with the Kaibab National Forest announce prescribed burning will occur on the Williams Ranger District next week, depending on conditions and Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) approval. If the temperature, wind, humidity and ventilation are favorable and ADEQ endorses the request, personnel will burn approximately 300 acres Tuesday, on the Northeast Freeway unit of the City Prescribed Burn Project.
The project is east of Williams, south of Interstate 40 and southwest of Highway 64. The Freeway unit will be ignited early in the morning to allow for maximum smoke dispersal. Managers expect moderate to heavy smoke production during the burn.
