Burnout operations are will continue Wednesday on the Whiskey Fire, burning southwest of Flagstaff. The fire is burning around eight miles west of the Turkey Butte Lookout, near the Saber Fire and is burning in the footprint of the Slide Fire. It has burned nearly 39-hundred acres and is 16-percent contained. Fire managers are conducting burnout operations on the fire to secure the fire’s boundary line. Fire managers say Wednesday’s operations are expected to produce a significant amount of smoke for a few days. Burnouts were supposed to take place yesterday, but weather put it off until Wednesday.
