Prescribed Fires North of Globe

Two prescribed fires have been scheduled for Apr. 30th through May 10th. Specifically, “The 531-acre Roadside prescribed fire operation will occur within the Globe Ranger District’s Roadside burn block located 25 miles northeast of Globe, Arizona. Following the Roadside burn, Tonto fire crews, working in collaboration with the San Carlos Apache Tribe’s fire crews, will share resources and assist the Tribal Reserved Treaty Rights Land (RTRL) fire crews with a prescribed fire in the 1,967-acre Tanks Unit on reservation land adjacent to the Roadside burn block.”

Also, “For the safety of the fire crews and the public, officials urge motorists to use extreme caution when driving on US Route 60 as fire specialists anticipate possible smoke impacts from mile marker 281 to mile marker 284. Burning will cease each day by 3 p.m. to reduce smoke impacts to US Route 60.”
