Coconino National Forest prescribed burns on hold Wednesday…a go for Thursday and Friday

Due to critical fire weather, Coconino National Forest fire managers will not begin prescribed burns tomorrow as originally planned. Spokesman Brady Smith says the burns will begin Thursday with 190-acres scheduled to be treated with fire in the northern end of Beaver Creek. Thursday and Friday crews will also treat up to 4,000-acres north of the San Francisco Peaks. Smith says smoke will likely be visible through the weekend.  Kaibab National Forest crews conducted a test burn Monday and decided to cancel all burns planned this week.
