Ventilation is predicted to move smoke toward the northeast and may impact Interstate 17, the I-17 intersection with I-40, state Route 89A, Forest Highlands, Fort Tuthill and Flagstaff Airport, according to the U.S. Forest Service. Cooling temperatures in the evenings may cause smoke to settle in the low-lying areas surrounding the burn, such as James Canyon, Kelly Canyon and possibly Walnut Canyon National Monument.

On Tuesday, firefighters conducted a prescribed burn of 650 acres in the Anderson Mesa area, 10 miles southeast of Flagstaff.
