Twin Fire Project will be ignited tomorrow
Evening burns to be conducted

WILLIAMS - Fire managers with the Kaibab National Forest are continuing work on the Twin Prescribed Fire Project, located south of Williams on the south side of Bill Williams Mountain. Personnel plan to conduct evening burning operations along containment lines on one of the units in the project area tomorrow. Implementation of the project will occur if favorable burning conditions exist and Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) approves the burn request.

Given the location of the project on the south slope of Bill Williams Mountain, evening conditions with cool temperatures and diurnal winds will help prevent rapid fire spread while personnel ignite the 20-acre burn along the northern containment lines. Next week, officials plan to conduct aerial ignitions on the rest of the 812-acre unit and on another unit (338 acres) in the Twin Project further southwest near Forest Road 108, commonly known as the Loop Road.

The burns will be monitored for fire spread and smoke production. Smoke is expected to drift south and west of the project site. Camping and hunting near the prescribed burn areas is not advised.
