Friday (9/29) KNAU in the White Mountains, KNAA 90.7, will reduce power temporarily. This is to protect tower workers as they work on an adjacent cellular antenna. Reception may be poor to non-existent in some areas including service over the repeater on 105.3. Online streaming service will not be affected. With afternoon winds forecast, the crew will likely get an early start and may not require a great deal of time for their work.

KNAU's main phone line is experiencing technical difficulties. Click here to contact members of our team directly.

The Kaibab, Coconino and Apache-Sitgreaves national forests will lift all fire restrictions Friday at 6 a.m.

Officials say recent heavy monsoon rain has improved wildfire conditions but they acknowledge overall fire danger remains high. Bill Williams Mountain on the Kaibab will also reopen.

Area closures will, however, remain in effect in Sycamore Canyon because of the Rafael Fire as well as near the Slate, Backbone and Mangum fires.

In addition, Coconino County and City of Flagstaff officials have announced they’ll rescind all fire bans Friday morning.

Grand Canyon National Park will also lift a stage 2 fire restrictions but will leave a stage 1 ban in place limiting campfires to maintained campgrounds.
