Wildfires, like the ones that killed dozens of people in California last month, are often followed by flash floods. Researchers at Northern Arizona University say those twin dangers can have ripple effects on the economy. A recent study found a significant price drop for Flagstaff homes affected by the 2010 Schultz Fire and the floods that followed. KNAU’s Melissa Sevigny spoke to lead author Julie Mueller.

Volunteers Needed To Replant Trees In Schultz Burn Area

Apr 10, 2015

The Coconino National Forest is asking volunteers to help plant thousands of trees in the Schultz Fire Burn Area near Flagstaff this weekend. As Arizona Public Radio’s Aaron Granillo reports, forest officials hope Saturday’s event will help bring the area back to life.

As much of Northern Arizona holds its breath waiting for rain, residents in the Timberline neighborhood are not as hopeful.

This summer’s monsoon season could bring more devastating floods.

Coconino County and the Forest Service have plans to build channels to keep mud and floodwaters from damaging homes.

But, these plans depend on approval of all homeowners, and not everyone is falling in line.

After the 2010 Schultz Fire burned 15,000 hillside  acres northeast of Flagstaff, residents in Timberline are all too familiar with summer flooding.
