Fire Managers On The Pipeline And Haywire Fires Prepared For High Wind Conditions

The Pipeline Fire is now over 26-thousand acres burned, with 27-percent containment, while the Haywire Fire has now burned over 54-hundred acres and 11-percent containment. Evacuations remain in place for Shultz Pass Road, Arizona Snowbowl, Crater Estates/Alpine Ranchos West, O’Leary and east of Highway 89. Fire activity is expected to increase today with forecasted warm, dry, increasingly windy conditions. Constructed firelines held with little growth on the Pipeline and Haywire fires. Hot dry weather continues to contribute to the critically dry fuels. Winds will carry smoke to north-northeast impacting homesteads north and east of Flagstaff including the Navajo Nation. Smoke will be visible within the perimeter of the fire. Fire officials ask to please do not call 911 on smoke within the burned area, only call 911 for smoke in non-burned areas outside the fire’s perimeter. There are over 900 personnel total working both fires.
