Tunnel Fire closure area reduced

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz., May 16, 2022 – The Coconino National Forest has reduced the size of the closure area for the Tunnel Fire to allow for increased access and recreation in areas that access Lockett Meadow and the inner basin via Forest Road 552. 

 

A Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) team has completed its assessment of the Tunnel Fire areas, and the Flagstaff Ranger District has determined it is safe to reduce the size of the closure in that area. Information about the BAER results can be found on the Tunnel Fire BAER Inciweb page, including the Soil Burn Severity Map

 

At this time, the closure is set to remain in effect until June 20. However, the closure area may be reduced again in the future or may be completely rescinded before that date if conditions allow.
