BLM Fire Prevention Officer Chad Benson monitors progress on the recent prescribed fire in Hibernia Canyon, approximately 20 miles southeast of Kingman. Using a torch mounted on a helicopter, BLM crews treated nearly 1,800 acres in the burn unit.

The goal was to reduce the potential for large wildfires in the Hualapai Mountains and to improve forage conditions for wildlife and livestock.
