FIRE SIZE: Approximately 9,402 acres
NUMBER OF PERSONNEL ASSIGNED: 300
As a reminder, the Prescott National Forest has implemented a fire area emergency closure which ultimately provides for both public and firefighter safety. The Upper and Lower Wolf Creek Campgrounds, Groom Creek Horse Camp, Ranch Trail #62, and Goldwater Lake remain closed. Watson Lake also remains closed as it continues to serve as base camp for fire crews and overhead. Law enforcement and firefighters continue to find people hiking and off-roading within the closure area. While the fire remains 96% contained and fire activity has significantly decreased, hazards exist in and around the fire’s perimeter. Ash pits, stump holes, and downed trees can often go unnoticed by the public and create additional safety risks.
REMEMBER, STAGE 1 FIRE RESTRICTIONS ARE IN EFFECT THURSDAY, MAY 5TH. https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/prescott/news-events/…
