PRESCOTT, AZ, January 27, 2022 - Fire Managers on the Bradshaw Ranger District will continue to burn debris piles near Walker, Ponderosa Park/White Spar, Copper Basin, Lynx Lake and Thumb Butte.  Ignitions are planned to start on Monday, January 31, 2022, and continue through Monday, February 28, 2022, as favorable weather conditions allow.  Fire managers expect smoke impacts to be light in the surrounding areas.  During the month of January fire fighters burned over 1,000 acres of piles in the Prescott basin.  

In the interest of safety, forest visitors are reminded to obey all traffic signs and use caution when traveling in the vicinity of any burning activities, as firefighters and fire-related traffic will be in the area.

The purpose of this project is to reduce hazardous fuels following thinning and fuelwood removal activities. Reducing hazardous fuels will help reduce the threat of high-severity, high-intensity wildfire to the public, adjacent private property, and area communities. Burning of debris left over from brush crush and thinning projects requires moisture in the surrounding vegetation and typically produces much lighter smoke than broadcast burning.

All fire activity is dependent on the availability of personnel and equipment, weather, fuels and conditions that minimize smoke impacts as much as possible, and approval from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (www.azdeq.gov).

Messages will be posted on social media when managed fires are ignited on the Prescott National Forest:
