Fire managers are planning a prescribed burn on Anderson Mesa southeast of Flagstaff Thursday and Friday. Conditions should be ideal to burn the grasses on approximately 2,000 acres south of Ashurst Lake.
During ignition, smoke will dissipate south of Flagstaff and toward the north. Some light residual smoke may be noticeable along Lake Mary Road and in Mormon Lake Village overnight.
Crews may also ignite several piles on 5 acres north of Clint’s Well and west of Lake Mary Road near Mahan Park.
Fire managers work hard to address the critical need for reducing the risk of severe wildfires near homes and neighborhoods while minimizing smoke impacts to communities.
