CLINTS WELL, Ariz., June 22, 2021 — The Snake Fire, located about 7 miles west of Clints Well on the northern edge of West Clear Creek is currently 45 acres, and firefighters have lined approximately 80 percent of the fire.
Air and ground resources, to include two engines, a Hotshot crew, dozer, and helicopter are keeping the fire from growing atop the ridge of West Clear Creek. However, parts of the wildfire have creeped down into the canyon, so air resources from the Backbone Fire are supporting the suppression of the Snake Fire.
The Snake Fire was reported at 2:36 p.m. on Monday by the Apache Maid Lookout, and the cause of the wildfire is unknown. More information will be shared as it is received.
