1971: Over the weekend, Coconino National Forest Fire Control Officers arrested 17 campers for violating camp fire and smoking restrictions in the forest.

Three forest fires broke out near Flagstaff that kept our firefighters very busy.

Almost a year after Flagstaff's only two-story treehouse posted coast-to-coast news, the whole thing collapsed – the 300-year-old Ponderosa pine and everything. The tree house built by former Northern Arizona University students is now for the wood mill.

1996: The Northland Preparatory Academy has come to Flagstaff. It's an International Baccalaureate High School that opens here this fall. It is a charter school funded by the state of Arizona.

It's a very solid, rigorous academic program. Charter schools approved by Arizona law in 1994 are funded per student and are considered "public".
