Final Update: North Rim Fires, Grand Canyon National Park

Grand Canyon, Ariz. - Regular monsoonal moisture over the course of the last week has extinguished both the Green Lake and Manzanita Fires.
Fire managers had made the decision to manage the lightning-caused Green Lake and Manzanita Fires in order to achieve multiple resource and protection objectives. However, both fires were declared out this week after heavy precipitation at the north rim extinguished any remaining heat in the fires. Neither fire had ever grown to more than one-quarter acre in size.
