Prescribed Burn Continues This Week


Wildland fire personnel are conducting a large, prescribed burn north of the Payson Airport. Residents and visitors to Rim Country can expect to see large volumes of black smoke for a brief duration of two to four hours each day and flame lengths of 40 to 50 feet.

Prescribed fire allows land managers to reduce dense and decadent fuel loading, while accelerating vegetative debris decomposition on the forest floor.

Prescribed burns also stimulate nutrient release back into the soil.
