The C3 Fire area received abundant rain yesterday which significantly reduced the fire’s behavior and growth. The fire is smoldering, consuming larger logs and roots. Given the significant amount of moisture received, firefighters do not anticipate the fire growing outside of its existing footprint. Fire managers continue to monitor the fire for any signs of increased activity or spread.
Due to continued rains and to minimize impacts to roads in the fire area, firefighters will be accessing the fire on UTVs where feasible, with limited suppression activities during storms.
For safety and protection, the public is encouraged to stay out of the area for their safety and for the safety emergency responders. There is increased fire traffic in the community of Peach Springs and along roadways as they travel to the fire, please be cautious if driving in these areas.
Due to the abundant moisture received and the significant reduction in fire activity, Fire Updates will be released every other day.
Resources Assigned: 1 – Type 1 Crews, 1 – Type 2 Crew, 5 – Engines, 1 – Helicopters, 2 - Dozers
