The Reserve Ranger District is planning on igniting 220 acres broadcast burning located on and around the Negrito Firebase Administrative Site compound. The prescribed burn is tentatively scheduled for May 20, 2019 as desired weather and fire conditions permit. The project should be completed within a two to three day period. The Negrito Fire Base Prescribed Burn is a Wildland/Urban Interface Fuel Reduction treatment for the protection of the public, firefighters, property, buildings, and other structures. The prescribed fire will also reduce the risk of wildfire spread to and from the surrounding area. Negrito Fire Base is located on the Reserve Ranger District within the Gila National Forest, approximately 43 miles southeast of Reserve following Forest Road 141 to the junction of Forest Road 28. The project area encompasses 220 acres of primarily ponderosa pine stand with grass or needle cast understory.
