Ko’ Ba Nagoni I (Fire Update)
 

Announcement: The Graham County Sheriff’s Office has rescinded the Pinnacle Fire evacuation order for the Black Rock area effective June 24th at 6 p.m.
 
  
Thursday, crews working the Pinnacle Fire continued to perform mop-up and suppression repair. Little smoke was encountered as work continued. No water drops were conducted as the footprint of the Pinnacle Fire cooled.
 
A Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) team has been ordered and will begin surveying the fire footprint to evaluate the severity of the burn. Once the plan is complete, the BAER team will repair severely burned portions of the fire to minimize potential flooding and erosion.

Currently assigned resources include 1 hand crew, 3 helicopters, 15 engines, 6 water tenders, and 2 dozers. Resources are being released from the Pinnacle Fire as operational needs are reduced. Released resources will travel home, rest, resupply, and prepare for their next assignment in what is unfolding as a long and severe fire season in the western United States.
