Fall 2017 Prescribed Burns (Prescribed Fire)

Inciweb - Incidents - Mon, 11/06/2017 - 09:40
Fire managers plan to conduct several prescribed burns over fall 2017 and into spring 2018. Projects are dependent upon weather and wind conditions, so they can be cancelled after they have been announced if conditions are not suitable. Smoke from the burns is generally expected to disperse toward the northeast and may settle in low areas northeast of the specific burn, especially during the evening and early morning hours. Prescribed fires are essential tools for restoring the forests in our fire-adapted ecosystem, and smoke is an unavoidable byproduct of these vital efforts. Fire managers strive to minimize smoke impacts to the community as much as possible. They burn when winds and other atmospheric conditions will push the majority of smoke away from homes; they’ll burn larger sections at a time to ultimately limit the number of days smoke is in the air; and they work closely with the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality, partners in the Ponderosa Fire Advisory Council,...

Prescribed Burns 2017 (Prescribed Fire)

Inciweb - Incidents - Mon, 11/06/2017 - 09:35
Fire managers are planning to conduct several prescribed burn projects during the late summer 2016 through winter 2017, as weather conditions allow. Prescribed fires are essential for restoring the landscape in our fire-adapted ecosystem, and smoke is an unavoidable byproduct of these vital efforts. Fire managers strive to minimize smoke impacts to the community as much as possible. Burning occurs when winds and other atmospheric conditions will push the majority of smoke away from homes, and fire managers will burn larger areas when conditions permit, to limit the number of days smoke is in the air. Fire managers work closely with the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality and neighboring forests to monitor air quality. Fire crews also seek opportunities to use excess material from thinning projects around the community instead of burning it whenever possible. However, this doesn't remove all of the material necessary to restore the landscape. Fire is a natural and necessary...

Additionally, the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest has made documents related to the Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) effort available to the public via the RRSNF’s website. People can now access both the full BAER report, and the Specialist Reports that informed that document. (The public should be aware that the Specialist Reports document is a 163-page PDF document, and may take some time to download on slower internet connections.)

Cedar East Omnibus & Lewis Camp (Prescribed Fire)

Inciweb - Incidents - Sat, 11/04/2017 - 12:03
Fire staff completed ignitions on the last segment of the Cedar East Prescribed Burn unit on October 20, 2017, for a total of 186 acres treated since October 17, 2017. The difference from the planned total acreage of 192 for this segment is due to variable weather that created good conditions for prescribed burning in some parts of the unit, and less favorable conditions in others. This segment of the Cedar East Prescribed burn is a continuation of the 424-acre treatment that was performed in April of 2017, bringing the project’s total acreage to 610. This prescribed burn is intended to reduce hazardous fuel loading and restore/maintain the natural fire cycle in Cedar Grove. “This prescribed burn is bringing fire back to a section of Cedar Grove that hasn’t seen fire for many years,” says Incident Commander Ben Jacobs. “In addition to improving the overall health of the watershed, prescribed burning also helps to reduce the risk posed by large wildfires, because we’re...

North Zone Prescribed Fire Update: Wildhorse Rx Complete (KNF-GRCA North Zone Fire Rx 2017-2018 Prescribed Fire)

Wildland Fire Incidents - Fri, 11/03/2017 - 21:04
Fredonia, Ariz., Nov. 3, 2017 – For Immediate Release. Ignition operations on the Wildhorse prescribed fire (Wildhorse Rx) were completed today. As a result, smoke from the prescribed burn is expected to result in more favorable smoke dispersion over the weekend. Fire managers estimate that approximately 2,813 acres of hazardous fuels have been treated since the project began this week on the North Kaibab Ranger District of the Kaibab National Forest. Over the weekend, resources will remain onsite and continue to monitor and patrol the Wildhorse and Tipover East prescribed fire projects. Fire managers anticipate smoke impacts to lessen over the communities in Marble Canyon and Page, AZ, and traffic directly adjacent to the Wildhorse Rx Unit. Motorists are asked to remain cautious when traveling in and around these prescribed burn units, Arizona Highways 89A and 67 as smoke may intermittently impact these areas. Visitors are reminded to use caution, drive slowly, turn on...

The Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests’ Black Mesa Ranger District plans to conduct a prescribed burn within the Alder Burn Block of the Rim Lakes Forest Health Prescribed Burn area, if weather conditions allow, from November 7 - 9. This burn will be Northwest of Woods Canyon Lake north of Forest Road 195, east of Forest Road 300, and south of Forest Road 169. The whole burn project will encompass about 1,400 acres. Smoke may be visible from the community of Forest Lakes, and from U.S. Highway 260 and 377. Motorists are advised to drive safely when approaching areas where prescribed fire activities may limit visibility and hinder fire personnel operations. Once ignition occurs, crews will be on scene from ignition until there is no longer a threat of escape from the project boundaries. Prescribed burning provides many benefits and is essential to maintaining healthy forest ecosystems. It provides habitat diversity, recycles plant nutrients into the soil and encourages new...

Norse Peak/American Fires BAER (Burned Area Emergency Response)

Inciweb - Incidents - Fri, 11/03/2017 - 15:01
Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) teams have been established to begin burned area surveys of the wildfires that recently burned on federal lands of the Mt.Baker Snoqualmie and Okanogan Wenatchee National Forests. BAER team surveys are rapid assessments of the burned areas that evaluate post-fire conditions of the burned watersheds and determine the potential for increased post-fire flooding, sediment flows, and rock slides. BAER teams consist of scientists and specialists including hydrologists, geologists, soil scientists, road engineers, botanists, wildlife and fisheries biologists, archeologists, and geographic information specialists, from federal and state agencies. BAER teams work together during the burned area surveys, field data analysis and modeling phase, to present findings along with recommended BAER treatments to the Forest Supervisor. BAER teams analyze the data they collect during the surveys, to produce a “Soil Burn Severity” map. This is the first step in...

Wildland Fire Incidents - Fri, 11/03/2017 - 11:31
Williams, Ariz., Oct 26, 2017—For Immediate Release. Unseasonably warm and dry weather conditions in northern Arizona have presented a unique opportunity for Fire Managers on the Williams Ranger District of the Kaibab National Forest to successfully treat just under 10,000 acres of densely forested area with prescribed fire over the month of October. The Green Base Prescribed Fire project which is 9836 acres in size is complete and operations have shifted to the Sunflower project south of Williams AZ. The Kaibab National Forest is actively working to restore the historic fire regime of frequent, low-to-moderate intensity fires on the local landscape. Prescribed fires are conducted to consume accumulated build ups of forest litter and debris that can pose an imminent threat to adjacent communities. There are a number of additional benefits which include protection of wildlife habitat, historic heritage sites, large old growth timber stands, watersheds and infrastructure that fall...
