TUSAYAN, AZ (AP) -

Smoke from a prescribed burn is expected to linger around the community of Tusayan throughout the weekend.

The Kaibab National Forest and the Tusayan Fire Department conducted the 173-acre burn on a mix of forest and private land southwest of Tusayan. A forest fire management officer says Thursday's burn will produce smoke for a couple of days.

Plans call for burning 50 acres east of Tusayan on Monday and another 300 acres west of Grand Canyon airport.
