Residents Evacuated From The Crooks Fire From Walker Road Can Go Home At 3 P.M.

Yavapai County Sheriff David Rhodes’s office has announced that people evacuated from Walker Road, north of mile marker 10 and west of Big Bug Mesa, will be allowed to return to their homes beginning Monday beginning at 3 p.m. Residents only can drive to the checkpoint on Walker Road at the south entrance to Lynx Lake to meet a sheriff’s deputy who will facilitate your return home. The area will still be on a “SET” status, however. The fire is not completely contained so fire personnel and equipment will still be working in the area and need to be able to maneuver freely, so we ask that residents try to limit the traffic around the area. Other areas that are evacuated will stay in that status until the fire is further under and YCSO will continue to update the public as the situations change.
