TUSAYAN, Ariz. - The Tusayan Ranger District of the Kaibab National Forest plans to burn about 20 acres of piles tomorrow depending on weather conditions.

The piles are near Grandview Lookout and Ten X Campground. Light smoke may be visible during ignition operations.

The piles are hand-stacked from prior thinning operations. Pile burning will reduce the amount of fuel in the forest and minimize risk of high-intensity wildfire in the future.

More information on Tusayan prescribed burning by visiting Inciweb.org at www.inciweb.org/state/3/ or by contacting Tusayan Fire Management Officer Quentin Johnson at (928) 635-8218.

That's stupid. Why don't they have the towns people come and get the wood for winter? Common sense would tell me that the piles could set the forest on fire as would a campfire. What a waste.
