Arizona Strip Wildland Fire Update

St. George—In July 2012, the Mt. Trumbull Complex, which includes the Mt. Trumbull, Coyote, and Pueblo Fires were ignited by lightning within the Mt. Trumbull Wilderness.  Since that time fire managers have been managing the fires for multiple objectives other than full suppression to meet future desired conditions established in Resource Management Plans. The Mt. Trumbull Complex is approximately 900 acres.  Smoke from the Coyote fire may be visible from towns like Colorado City, Fredonia, and Pipe Spring, Arizona off Highway 389.  The Mount Trumbull trailhead is closed to ensure public safety.  No road closures or evacuations have been implemented.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
