BLM fire and land managers urge the public to proceed with caution when traveling through the area. During monsoon season, heavy rains that occur on burned areas can cause flash flooding and debris flows which result in extremely hazardous driving conditions. Crossing normally dry washes becomes extremely dangerous during flash flooding and is not advised.
Fire managers also request the public proceed with caution when driving in the area as fire fighters and vehicles may still be in the area conducting repair and rehabilitation work.
