An earthquake helped end 2018 in an interesting way for folks in Ash Fork. The U.S. Geological Survey says a 3.1 earthquake rattled some nerves in the area early Sunday morning. Some residents of Ash Fork reported feeling some rumbling and hearing the windows shake for a brief time, with a few items falling off a shelf. The USGS says there has been at least one aftershock since then. The quake was centered about ten miles northwest of Ash Fork and was just over three miles deep. The quake is thought to have been on the Big Chino Fault, which was home to a 5.1 earthquake in Chino Valley back in 1976.
