Managers cancel Flying J prescribed fire on Tusayan Ranger District
Williams-Grand Canyon News


TUSAYAN, Ariz. - Fire managers canceled the 90-acre Flying J prescribed fire planned for Monday after further evaluation of the fuels conditions in the project unit and discussions about weather trends with the National Weather Service. The unit is located two miles southwest of Tusayan, just west of the Grand Canyon Airport on the Kaibab National Forest.

Favorable conditions may return to the area by mid-week which may provide an opportunity for fire crews to conduct the burn. The objectives of the prescribed fire include returning fire to the ecosystem, reducing hazardous fuels and improving wildlife habitat.

For more information, please call Punky Moore, Fire Information Officer at (928) 635-5653.
