CKFD to Perform Controlled Burns

Beginning the morning of Sunday December 3rd, residents and guests should expect to see significant SMOKE originating from the slopes of the eastern side of town (below Flag Mountain).

Crews and volunteers from CKFD will be doing a prescribed burn of the brush piles along a fire break. The break was created to protect the town from a wildland forest fire. Mayer FD is supplying additional staff and resources.

If conditions hold good, CKFD may continue the prescribed burns throughout the week. Captain Ryan Blair is coordinating the project. If there are any questions, please contact Chief Bryan Smith at (928) 632-9534.

Persons with breathing conditions should exercise caution and potentially remain indoors.
