Four prescribed burns this week on the Coconino National Forest

Coconino National Forest fire managers are hoping to conduct four prescribed burns this week. Tuesday, crews hope to burn 100-acres just south of Munds Park. The area will act as a fire break for the community. Wednesday, over 1,300-acres is slated to be treated with fire near Lower Lake Mary along Lake Mary Road. The burn could take a few days to complete. Thursday, crews may try to burn 1,300-acres north of the San Francisco Peaks, but with strong winds in the forecast, the project may be put on hold. Today through Thursday, crews also hope to treat 6,500-acres of forest 20-miles east of Montezuma’s Castle.
