FIRE CLOSURE: The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office and Prescott National Forest have closed County Road 177 and national forest lands generally south of County Road 177 from Mayer west to Palace Station, except for Crown King residents with identification. For detailed information see: https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/article/7595/60663/ The Tiger Fire perimeter was quiet Tuesday as the fire footprint cooled. Crews patrolled, monitored, and continued to work on fire line rehabilitation and removal of unneeded fire equipment. A grader resumed repair of roads damaged by fire traffic. Crews also were available to provide initial attack for any new fire ignitions in our area. An incoming incident commander began getting familiar with the fire suppression work that has been conducted. Wednesday’s activities will be continued patrol, monitoring and fire suppression repair of fire lines. The Crown King Road will be in use by heavy equipment until Thursday morning as they transit the fire area to be loaded on their transports for removal on more accessible terrain. This will be the final update from Southwest Incident Command Team #3. The fire will revert to local management Thursday morning at 6 a.m. and Team #3 will prepare for its next incident mobilization.  Incident Commander Dave Gesser extends his sincere appreciation to the communities of Crown King, Black Canyon City, Cleator, Mayer/Spring Valley, and Yavapai County, for your patience and cooperation on this challenging wildfire. He recognizes the challenges fire suppression operations cause for your communities. Thank you for allowing us to work with you through this complex incident. WEATHER: Increasing chances of area thunderstorms and accompanying gusty outflow winds for the next several days. Possible flooding can accompany localized rain events during this period. EVACUATIONS:  All Tiger Fire evacuation status designations by the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office have been rescinded effective 8 a.m. this morning. FOREST RESTRICTIONS: Arizona’s publicly managed lands are in widely different levels of restrictions. Those planning to visit Arizona’s outdoors should consult appropriate land management agency web sites immediately prior to planning a trip to determine current restrictions and emergency fire area closures.
