A lightning strike ignited the 33 Springs Fire on October 6, 2017. The fire is in rough, rugged terrain in Leonard Canyon, 17 miles northwest of Forest Lakes and bordering the Coconino National Forest. Southwest winds produced strong gusty winds today but the fire lines held and there was no additional growth. Dozer lines and hand lines are complete around the perimeter of the fire, and crews continued to patrol and mop up the southern, eastern and northern flanks of the fire today. On October 14, the 33 Springs Fire is planned to transition from a Type 3 fire to a Type 4 fire because it has become less complex and less of a threat. No changes are expected over the weekend, however, the fire will be constantly evaluated and monitored by fire personnel on the scene.
