The Pipeline Fire Is Burning Out Of Control North Of Flagstaff In The San Francisco Peaks

The Pipeline Fire continues to burn out of control on the San Francisco Peaks. Coconino National Forest officials say the fire has burned five-thousand acres, six miles north of Flagstaff. The fire was reported at 10:15 a.m. Sunday by fire lookout. Firefighters are working to suppress and keep fire from entering areas near communities, while deflecting the fire along the San Francisco Peaks toward the northeast as it enters some of the 2010 Schultz Fire and recent Tunnel Fire burn scars. “GO” orders have been issued for all forest roads in the area of the fire, including Schultz Pass Road, Arizona Snowbowl, Girls Ranch, Fernwood, Wupatki Trails, and all areas of Timberline-south of Brandis to Elden Springs Road, the neighborhood along Highway 89 North in the area of Sacred Mountain Trading Post on both sides of the highway, and North Doney Park, just north of Silver Saddle Road and east of Highway 89. Areas in “SET” status include areas east of Shultz Pass Road, north of Highway 180, including Mount Elden Estates off Forest Service Road 556, Mount Elden Lookout Road, areas north of Sacred Mountain Trading Post to Antelope Hills and Sinagua Trading Post, and all south Doney Park. ADOT has also closed US Highway 89 in both directions. The highway is closed northbound at Campbell. Traffic is being detoured through the Grand Canyon National Park without a charge until further notice. The Red Cross has set up an emergency evacuation center at Sinagua Middle School. Coconino Humane Association will be accepting small house animals at their location at 3501 E. Butler Avenue. Horses and large animals can be taken to Fort Tuthill near the horse stables. For those who need information on the Pipeline Fire, Coconino County has set up an information number. Call (928) 679-8525. So far there has been no structures, or homes have been lost in the Pipeline Fire.
