Boulin Fire Final Update: 08/24/2019

Williams, Ariz., August 24, 2019—For Immediate Release. The 4039 acre Boulin Fire on the Williams Ranger District of the Kaibab National Forest has exhibited no additional growth and is not expected to increase in size. This lightning caused fire was very successful in meeting the overall intent to reintroduce fire back into the ponderosa pine landscape for the purpose of restoring forest health, and ensuring long term sustainability.

With public and firefighter safety being the number one objective, Incident Commander Tyler Richwine was pleased to report there were no accidents or injuries, and there were no losses or damage to any resources or private property throughout the duration of this 18 day incident.



Start Date: August 5, 2019.

Cause: Lightning.

Location: East of Spring Valley near The Beale Wagon Trail and forest roads 141, 713, and 730.

Current Size: 4039 acres.

Containment: 75%

Incident Commander: Tyler Richwine ICT4T.

Resources: One - Type 3 Engine, one-Patrol unit, and four-Miscellaneous overhead. Total personnel assigned is 10.

Current Status: The Boulin fire has reached its maximum growth potential at 4039 acres. There has been no movement on the perimeter and officials predict no additional acres will burn.

Firefighters will remain on scene for several more days as the burn area cools to ensure containment lines hold and to mitigate any hazards that may still exist. This will be the final update on the Boulin Fire unless conditions change.


Smoke: Some smoke may linger as fuels within the interior continue to consume however good ventilation will occur throughout the day with very little residual impacts to the surrounding area.
