Multiple fires start on North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park

GRAND CANYON - Fire officials say four fires were reported on the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park Friday.

Crews say of the fires are actively being suppressed; the first is located on Uncle Jim Point (east of the developed area) and is approximately 1/3 of an acre. The second fire is located on the Tail of the Dragon.

Park fire managers will continue to monitor the other 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.

Officials said the park airplane is being used to detect any additional fires.
