Ko’ Ba Nagoni i’ - Wildfires Update

Firefighters have been working to actively suppress the Blue River and the Dry Lake fires since their discovery after a June 5 thunderstorm.  

Agencies throughout the southwest have been experiencing dry and dangerous conditions with high temperatures and the concern for the COVID-19 pandemic thus creating a complex situation. San Carlos Tribal Forest Resources Program and San Carlos Agency have called the Central West Zone Type 3 Incident Management Team to assist in addressing the complexity and assist in resources management as it relates to these fires.  

The Central West Zone Type 3 Incident Management Team has transitioned management of the fires back to the host unit and local Type 4 Incident Commanders on 06/18/2020.
No further updates can be expected.
