Woodbury Fire Local Type 3 Incident Management Team (IMT) Reminders
July 16, 2019
-The Woodbury is 100% contained around the perimeter edge. This does NOT mean that the fire is controlled. There is still smoke and active fire moving within the interior through pockets of unburned fuel.
-Apache Lake remains closed along with State Highway 88 between Tortilla Flat and the Roosevelt Dam. ADOT will issue a News Release later this week after conducting meetings with Tonto National Forest and other cooperating agencies. These meetings may provide a more definitive timeline on the closure.
-A forest closure order remains in place for the Woodbury Fire and surrounding area. You can read more about the closure at https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/article/6382/49307/
-Businesses remain open along Highway 188 and along State Highway 88 (Apache Trail) from Tortilla Flat south to Apache Junction.
-The Local Type 3 IMT and Tonto National Forest would like to thank the public for their ongoing support and patience throughout the Woodbury Fire.
-As information becomes available it will be posted to the Woodbury Fire Inciweb page found at https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/6382/ as well as the Tonto National Forest webpage and social media sites.
