Hyde Fire - July 14

Incident: Hyde Fire Wildfire
Released: 7/14/2017

Location: 30 miles northwest of Prescott in Camp Wood (T17N, R6W, S26)

Start Date: July 10th

Summary: The 300 acre Hyde Fire burning in Camp Wood is currently fulfilling its natural role and moving slowly across the landscape consuming dead and down wood and forest fuels. This wildfire is not a prescribed burn, but fire personnel will occasionally conduct burnout operations in specific areas to direct where and how the fire moves through the landscape and will be on scene, monitoring fire activity daily.

The Hyde Fire is a wildfire and does not have a planned end date, but firefighters have carefully analyzed a large planning area within which the fire may run its natural course. The low to moderate fire behavior is protecting the Ponderosa Pine in the area by reducing the likelihood of disease and a damaging wildfire that may occur at an unwanted time in the future.
