Prescribed Burn on Mingus Mountain
A prescribed burn begins Thursday in one part of the Verde Ranger District of the Prescott National Forest. Crews plan to ignite 436 acres in the Springs RX area on Mingus Mountain. The burn should take two days to complete. Smoke from the prescribed burn should be visible throughout the Tri-City area. These burns help remove hazardous fuel from the forest and reduce the risk of a catastrophic wildfire.
