The Bar M Fire - Closures SW of Mormon Lake

Post by Grasshopper » Jul 23 2014 2:42 pm

7/23 update from Coconino NF Information:

"Bar M Fire -

Size: Approximately 1,600 acres

Behavior: 1-2 foot flame lengths across the forest floor. Some isolated torching, which is natural and expected.

Location: 5 miles southwest of Mormon Lake near Forest Roads 240 and 91.

Closures: The immediate fire area is closed for public safety, including a portion of Forest Roads 127 and 126.

The public should expect an increase of smoke tonight in the Mormon Lake area. It may also drift down-canyon toward the Verde Valley."

@Grasshopper
Dang Hank you are reporting these fires faster then they are starting I think before in some cases! you either got a job in a fire tower or perhaps something more sinister :-k

@friendofThundergodToo hot :sweat: for me outside, so extra time to devote but I'm thinking it's a duplicate effort now as by afternoon each day pretty much the same updated fire info is available on our Forum main page--> left column--> forest news--> Coconino--> Update 7, etc.. ;)

There was a lot of smoke settled In Sedona in the AM.
Tortoise Hiking. Stop and smell the Petrichor.
