Fire specialists on the Coconino National Forest will continue a prescribed fire program by igniting slash piles Wednesday.

• Mountainaire Project Area, up to 20 acres per day, on south end of Flagstaff along Lake Mary Road near Mormon Lake Ranger Station, J.W. Blvd and Pine Canyon. Smoke may be noticeable in the immediate during ignition, but will be light and will disperse quickly.

• About 20 acres of slash piles were burned Tuesday on the Eastside Project Area along Townsend-Winona Road. Slash is leftover branches and small diameter trees from forest restoration projects.

All prescribed fire activity is dependent on personnel availability; weather – including ventilation conditions and approval from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (www.azdeq.gov).
