The SH Creek Fire was originally discovered on June 27, 2017 and put into a monitor status due to limited access, steep terrain and firefighter safety. Over the July 1st and 2nd weekend the fire shifted direction due to passing thunderstorms causing it to spread toward U.S. Highway 191. Burnout operations are being conducted along the Highway to prevent fire spread west of the Highway.

White Mountain Zone Type 3 Incident Management Team took command of the fire July 5, 2017 from the Clifton Ranger District.
