The Snake Ridge Fire continues to burn north of Clints Well. The fire has burned 82-hundred acres. Smoke from the fire, that has affected areas of the Verde Valley, Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon will switch to more of a southwest pattern and blow away from those areas today. Less intensity and smoke is also expected today after rain fell on the fire yesterday from storms in the area. However, crews will conduct a few burnout operations to build backlines and to protect power lines in the area.
