Prescribed burn to start again Monday - Gen. Crook Trail affected

PRESCOTT-- Fire managers are planning to continue treating the 169 East/West Prescribed Fire project Monday through Saturday, March 30.  Fire managers treated 200 acres on March 2 with 1,800 acres remaining.  Plans to hand and aerial ignite the remaining 1,800 acres will occur Monday through Saturday.  Specific days to burn are determined by current and expected weather patterns.    Predicted temperature and relative humidity forecasts are creating favorable conditions for meeting objectives that include: reducing accumulations of forest fuels, maintaining the natural role of fire in a fire-adapted ecosystem, and protection of adjacent wildland-urban interface and other critical infrastructure.

The area to be treated is east of the White Horse subdivision and approximately 8 miles east of Dewey-Humboldt; north of highway 169.  Fuels being treated consist of interior chaparral and grasses. While it is not anticipated that any road closure will be necessary, fire managers would like to remind people to drive with caution along highway 169 as fire personnel and equipment will be working in the area.  

The General George Crook Trail will be closed from the old Cherry road to highway 169 during implementation.  

 All prescribed fires activity is dependent on the availability of personnel and equipment, weather, fuels and conditions that minimize smoke impacts. Fire managers make every effort to minimize smoke impacts to the communities while continuing to address the critical need to reduce the risk of severe wildfires around those communities.
