D.G. Neary, USDA Forest Service

Coconino National Forest officials plan to conduct three large prescribed burns in the coming days. 

Friday and Saturday, crews will ignite more than 1,000 acres 13 miles southeast of Sedona. In addition, firefighters plan to burn 3,500 acres north of the San Francisco Peaks beginning early next week and more than 2,500 acres east of the Mormon Lake community.

Smoke could be visible from Lake Mary Road, the Village of Oak Creek, Rimrock and Flagstaff along with sections of Interstate-17, U.S. Highway 89 and Interstate-40. More information is on the Coconino’s website or Twitter feed.
