Heavy rains force continuation of closure of Kendrick areas
Aug. 18, 2017
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — The Forest Service says areas on and around Kendrick Mountain that were burned by a wildfire back in June remain closed to the public because of unstable conditions caused by heavy rains.
Kendrick is located 18 miles (29 kilometers) northeast of Flagstaff along the boundary between the Coconino and Kaibab national forest.
Forest officials say the mountain has been getting above-normal monsoon precipitation, which could lead to sudden hazards such as flooding and debris flows.
