Good Afternoon.  Firefighters continue to make steady progress, and are beginning to asses where work needs to be done to repair the fire lines once the fire has been contained.  I will not be sending out daily updates, unless conditions change enough to warrant sharing information.  The Boundary Fire Inciweb page will be updated daily. The maps and air quality report should be available on Boundary Fire inciweb shortly. 


I apologize for the delay the last two days.  We have had computer issues, both at the fire camp, and with the Forest Service network.  Thanks for your understanding.

Boundary Fire Suppression Repair Needs Assessed

Williams, Ariz., June 22, 2017—For Immediate Release. On Wednesday crews worked to secure control lines and patrol for hotspots along the perimeter. An assessment of suppression repair needs has begun. Suppression repair will include the construction of water bars to divert the flow of water away from fire lines during rainstorms, the felling of hazard trees, the repair of roads and trails where they were used as part of the control line and the repair of fences where they were cut to allow access to crews and equipment during suppression operations.

A Red Flag Warning is in effect today due to low humidity, high temperatures and strong winds. Due to the increased fire danger, the Coconino National Forest will move into Stage II fire restrictions at 8 am today.

The winds are expected to pick up today moving smoke around the north side of the San Francisco Peaks where it will then travel east. Smoke is expected to be most noticeable to the south of Grey Mountain and north of Timberline/Doney Park. For more information on smoke and air quality, visit
