The Tinder Fire Has Forced Evacuations In The Clear Creek Area

The Tinder Fire Has Forced Evacuations In The Clear Creek Area

A wildfire forced 10 northern Arizona communities to evacuate Sunday night. Evacuees were sent to Twin Arrows Casino, and those with large animals were told to go to the Navajo County Fairground in Holbrook, the report added.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, the AP also said.

The wildfire started late last week, spotted from a watchtower overlooking the Coconino National Forest. Crews used a structure engine hooked to a fire hydrant on Bennett Drive to contain the fire.

APS said Saturday it was de-energizing about 1,500 customers in the Blue Ridge community as part of fire mitigation efforts. Several roads have already been closed and drivers have been advised to look for alternative routes towards their destinations.




As of Sunday afternoon, 63 percent of the Arizona wildfires are contained.

More than 500 firefighters and a handful of helicopters were working to control the blaze.

"Firefighters are making excellent progress improving the containment of the Rattlesnake Fire". Dry and windy conditions are feeding the fire. Hand crews are using firing operations to remove unburnt fuels from previously constructed firelines. No firefighter or evacuee injuries have been reported.

A noticeable haze across the Denver metro area created by smoke coming from wildfires in nearby states is contributing to poor air quality on Monday. The owner was unable to put the fire out and it spread rapidly.
