Pile Burning Planned January 16th – 18th on Mingus Mountain


Verde Ranger District fire managers plan to continue fuels treatments on Mingus Mountain starting Tuesday, January 16th through Thursday, January 18th; weather conditions permitting. Benefits from these treatment help to reduce hazardous fuels adjacent to the wildland urban interface and increase ecosystem and community resilience.

Mingus Mountain Piles – Piles are located at the end of Forest Road 104A, approximately 2 miles east of Mingus Summit Day Use.

Burning of debris left over from thinning projects require moisture in the surrounding vegetation and typically produces much lighter smoke than broadcast burning. Pile burning is one piece of the ongoing fuels reduction work in the Prescott basin.

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).
