Approximately 50 Acres of piles (T14N, R2W, S34); located between Highland Pines and Deering Park. Burning of debris left over from brush-crush thinning projects require moisture in the surrounding vegetation and typically produces much lighter smoke than broadcast burning.
All prescribed fires activity is dependent on the availability of personnel and equipment, weather, fuels and conditions that minimize smoke impacts as best as possible and approval from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (www.azdeq.gov).
