The Tunnel Fire has burned 19,075 acres and is 43-percent contained. Crews will remain on the Tunnel Fire for several days to patrol and check on reports of smoke and mop-up as needed. Their work will also include finishing backhaul of equipment that is no longer in use and completing suppression repair. As work is accomplished, resources will be released and made available to respond to other priority fires in the southwest. Tomorrow morning at 7 a.m. the management of the Tunnel Fire will transition to the Coconino National Forest and a Type 4 team. The American Red Cross has opened a recovery assistance center at Cromer Elementary School. They provide immediate financial assistance, referrals to agencies to help with recovery and more.
