The Pipeline Fire, which burned much of the Coconino National Forest about 5 miles north of downtown Flagstaff, has forced people from their homes and shut down some of the most popular recreational areas in and around Flagstaff.
The pipeline fire was reported by a fire lookout at 10:15 am on June 12. A 57-year-old man was arrested on Sunday and charged with violating natural resources. He said he burned toilet paper and put it under a rock, according to court documents.
These roads, national monuments and recreational areas in the Flagstaff area are closed as a result of the pipeline fire.
