Fire Season in AZ

Published on July 15, 2011 by

With the rains we’ve had, the trails are getting grippy-fast and fun again… also, our human-caused fire season is just about over. It has been an interesting season. Over 4th of July weekend, Flagstaff had firework stands for the first time in my 11 years of residing here.

Interestingly or ironically, this comes 1 year after the Schultz Fire just North of Flagstaff, and less than one month after the largest wildfire in Arizona state history, the Wallow Fire, burned over 500,000 acres including approximately 1/4 of the Apache 200 mountain-bike route. It may be quite sometime before that route is ride-able/enjoyable again…

Remember the fire started by the city of Williams, AZ 4th of July fireworks? It burned anywhere from 0.6 to 100 acres depending on which website our emotions would like to believe.

Now we can also remember the Eager grass fire sparked by their 4th of July fireworks show. This happened just a couple weeks after the largest fire in AZ history threatened to burn the town…
