(Posted April 24, 2012, at 10:21 a.m.) Crews have begun ignition on the Eastside burn at Campbell Mesa, between Old Walnut Canyon Rd and I-40.
Light smoke is noticeable on I-40 east of Flagstaff near the Walnut Canyon exit. Some smoke may also be noticeable in eastern Doney Park area today, however, todays winds will help disperse the smoke and minimize overnight impacts.
Crews are burning in increments of 150-200 acres at a time, and may continue burning efforts on the rest of the 650-project tomorrow, pending today’s progress and tomorrow’s conditions.
