Incident: Juniper Fire Wildfire
Released: 6/14/2016

A few hot spots continue to burn and smolder on the Juniper Fire, producing only light smoke in the area. Crews are monitoring these hot spots and preparing for any potential flare-ups that could spread as the weather becomes hotter and drier. Additional crews continue to focus on rehabilitation of containment lines and remain alert for any new fire starts.

State Highway 288 is open to the public and the recreation sites on the western side of the highway have reopened. Forest Road 203, also known as Cherry Creek Road, is closed between the junction of Hwy 288 to the north and Ellison Ranch to the south.

All areas east of Hwy 288 inside the fire planning area remain closed due to safety concerns. Although fire activity has decreased, fire crews are still working on or near the roadway and travelers should drive with caution. Campfires and other open flames are currently prohibited on the Tonto National Forest in accordance with existing Fire Restrictions.
