The Coconino National Forest has scheduled some prescribed burns, one near Flagstaff, this week. Fire managers are finishing the last block of the Horseshoe-Wild Bill project Monday. Crews will burn about 550 acres 14 miles northwest of Flagstaff along Highway 180. Fire crews will also burn 600 acres on the Upper Beaver Creek Project in the Mogollon Rim Ranger District Monday. The burn will be about two miles east of Stoneman Lake. On Tuesday and Wednesday, crews will start the two-day Mint East Project two miles south of Mormon Lake on the east side or Lake Mary Road. The burn consists of 12-hundred acres. These burns are conducted to aid forest restoration and maintain areas to keep forest fuels from accumulating, which help mitigate extreme wildfire behavior.
