08-01-2014 19:07

On April 19 2014, a small storm cell passed over the Nantanes Plateau, shedding virga and dry lightning. The next day a fire was sighted among grass and shrubs above Skunk Creek. Two days later smoke spindled up through the pine forest around Bloody Basin. When the fire and forestry staff of the San Carlos Apache Reservation gathered, the Skunk Fire had scooted to 60 acres and the Basin Fire had barely held beyond a snag and scorched ground...In this essay, Stephen Pyne describes the evolution of the San Carlos Apache fire program, and how the changes occurring in southeastern Arizona might point the way forward for other units across the West.
