Museum Fire

A stump smolders Thursday morning inside the Museum Fire boundary just beside Mount Elden Lookout road.

The Coconino National Forest announced that while the Museum Fire is still 100% contained, the fire has begun to burn previously unburned fuels inside the containment line.

George Jozens, spokesperson for the national forest, said that although a fire is contained does not mean it has been put out. He asked people to respect the forest closure that is still enacted around the fire perimeter.

Flagstaff Ranger District wildland firefighters are monitoring the activity.  Firefighters are also adding fire to the fuels to speed up the burning and reduce the length of time for the smoke. The Museum Fire was contained at 1,961 acres after burning for 23 days in the mountains behind the Dry Lake Hills.
