If you see smoke, no need to worry. 

Prescott, AZ (April 11, 2016) –– Fire managers on the Verde Ranger District are planning to burn piles Tuesday, April 12 through Friday, April 15; pending favorable weather conditions.   

Piles are located east of Highway 89A; at the junction of Forest Road 104 and Forest Road 413.  Approximately 10 acres of piles per day will be treated.  No road or trail closures are expected, but visitors should be cautious while traveling in the area. 

Burning of debris left over from brush-crush and thinning projects require moisture in the surrounding vegetation and typically produces much lighter smoke than broadcast burning.   

All prescribed fires activity is dependent on the availability of personnel and equipment, weather, fuels and conditions that minimize smoke impacts as best as possible and approval from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (www.azdeq.gov).

The public can obtain additional prescribed fire information via the following:

Local Ranger Stations:  Bradshaw Ranger District, (928) 443-8000; Chino Valley Ranger District (928) 777-2200; Verde Ranger District (928) 567-4121
