Four Mile Fire Galiuro Mountains

Great progress on the Fourmile Prescribed Fire in the northwest part of the Galiuro Mountains.
Monday's accomplishments included blacklining the western boundary of the burn, and testing some interior slopes to evaluate burning conditions. Blacklining is burning areas to serve as the fire's outermost boundaries.
Tuesday the blackline on the western boundary was strengthened, and 80% of the blackline in Pipestem Canyon was completed.
The total project area, to be treated in March and April as conditions become favorable, is 11,500 acres. The purpose of the project is to reduce the accumulation of hazardous fuels, improve range and watershed conditions, improve wildlife habitat, return the ecosstem to a more fire-resilient state, and reduce the likelihood of high-intensity wildfire in the area. Reducing the threat of extreme fire behavior from future wildland fires also reduces threats to firefighter and public safety, and reduces costs.


Border 1 Burn near Coronado Memorial

The Border I Prescribed Fire is underway on the Sierra Vista Ranger District. The  burn is located on the west side of the Huachuca Mountains.
The burn will directly benefit the District and Coronado National Memorial by achieving the purposes of the Huachuca FIreScape Project. 
FireScape is a collaborative environmental analysis of three Federal agencies across approximately 400,000 acres.
Partners on the burn include Coronado National Forest; Bureau of Indian Affairs, Fort Apache Agency; and National Park Service, Coronado National Memorial.
Montezuma Pass Overlook will be closed during the burning, which will take place throughout today, and may continue through tomorrow
