Multiple fires on North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park

Grand Canyon, Ariz. - On Friday, four fires started on the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park.

Right now, the North Rim of the park is at a high fire danger and the South Rim is at Very High. A storm Friday afternoon produced rain and hail on the North Rim helping to diminsh the fire danger.

Two fires are actively being suppressed; the first is located on Uncle Jim Point and is about 1/3 of an acre. The second fire is located on the Tail of the Dragon.

Park fire managers will continue to monitor two fires; both are currently burning in single trees one in the 2003 Poplar Fire scar area and the second tree is north of Galahad Point.

Park resources being used to suppress and monitor these four fires include an engine crew and helicopter. The park airplane is being used to detect any additional fires.
