Fire managers with the Coconino National Forest have scheduled a few prescribed burns this week. More burns are set for the Peaks Project possibly Monday and Tuesday. The area is 15 miles north of Flagstaff just northeast of the San Francisco Peaks. Burns are also set for the same time about three miles east of Mormon Lake. There will be three separate blocks of burns totaling just over 25-hundred acres on the project. Smoke will be visible from Flagstaff, I-17 and I-40. All burns are being conducted to reduce forest fuels, while recycling nutrients and increasing habitat diversity.
