The Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests’ Black Mesa Ranger District plans to conduct a prescribed burn within Burn Blocks 1, 2, and 6 of the Nagel Forest Health Prescribed Burn area, if weather conditions allow, from Nov. 14-17. This burn will be south of the Dutch Joe Ranch area. The burn will be to the east of Forest Road 34, south of Forest Road 100, to the west of Forest Roads 117, and to the north of Forest Roads 9439 and 9429A. The burn blocks will encompass approximately 963 acres. Once ignition occurs, crews will be on scene from ignition until there is no longer a threat of escape from the project boundaries. This project is in partnership with the Arizona Game and Fish Department and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation to provide forest restoration and health to the Rocky Mountain Elk, mule deer, and other wildlife species that frequent the area.
