Incident Overview

The Roach Fire is now 95% contained with full containment expected in the next few days. The fire started on July 7th at 830 in the town of Dudleyville in Pinal County. At the time, the Pinal County Sheriff's Office immediately started evacuating some area residents due to the fire's proximity and the threat to structures. By Sunday, all residents were able to return home. Due to the aggressive attack of the fire, many firefighters will be demobilized in the next 24 hours, however some crews will remain to patrol the perimeter for hotspots, potential wind-drive flare ups, and possible lightning strike-caused fires. The Type 3 Incident Management Team assigned to the fire will transition the fire back to the Department of Forestry and Fire Management on Wednesday, July 12th. The fire is under investigation.
