I have a bad feeling on this fire. Bad terrain and bad weather to be fighting a big one.

Here's the link to the official Inciweb page for the Goodwin Fire:
https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/5278/

Because the posted closure map isn't particularly easy to read, I've created an outline here on HAZ:
https://hikearizona.com/map.php?MY=30380&M=3
(with the fire growth, I'm not sure how long this closure area will be accurate, but this map matches the map posted on Inciweb)

Over 20,000 acres and one flank has crossed AZ 69.

This makes me sad. I wonder how much of the Black Canyon Trail will burn?

Is the inciweb map cutting out for you all? 'Oops something went wrong' pops up after a couple seconds

One of the other fire pages has instructions for how to bypass the map error. It's happening on all the inciweb fire pages. (I don't remember how though ](*,) )

Preferring SWCC for some info with twitter feed for emerging fires and type crew orders before hits inciweb.

Contact Information:David McAtee YCEM Public Information Officer – (928)771-3321 David.McAtee@yavapai.us
__________________________________________________________ __________________________
For Immediate Release 6/28/2017 1:22 PM UPDATE
Current Acreage: 20,644
Percent contained: 1%
From the Southwest Area Type 1 Team:
The Goodwin Fire responded to critical weather and fuel conditions yesterday, and despite exemplary work on the ground and in the air, grew to 20,644 acres. The fire crossed State Highway 69 about half way between Poland Junction and Mayer not long after the road was closed due to heavy smoke at mid-afternoon. The section where the fire crossed Highway 69 was about a quarter mile wide. The fire then burned about 500 acres to the northeast. A newly established mobile retardant base close to the fire provided 88,00 gallons of retardant to rotor aircraft in nine hours. That figure doesn’t include the retardant dropped by the large air tankers that were loading at a nearby airport. Fixed wing aircraft and helicopters worked throughout the critical burning period protecting threatened structures and aiding firefighting efforts on the ground. The primary goal yesterday was to protect the communities of Pine Flat, Poland Junction and Mayer from the advancing fire. A substantial smoke column was visible throughout the afternoon, briefly growing to look like a thunderstorm cloud above the most severe fire activity. This cloud is called a pyro cumulus. This morning cold fire ash was dropping in Dewey-Humboldt.
The fire was active last night. Over 150 firefighters worked in the overnight hours to impede the progress of the fire. They encountered increased fire activity at 2:30 a.m. where the fire had crossed Hwy 69. Night crews burned out and improved bulldozer lines put in yesterday to protect Mayer. At dawn, the fire was already advancing across the ridge above Poland Junction. The incident meteorologist has reported that a local red flag warning has been issued for today, signaling another extremely dangerous day for firefighters on the line. To date there have been no injuries on the Goodwin Fire. Fire officials have strongly reminded firefighters that their lives and the lives of the public are the most important of the many values at risk due to this extremely dangerous fire.
Today large air tankers began making retardant drops at 8 a.m. Three helicopters started work at 7 a.m. Additional helicopters will join the activity later in the day to insure continuous aircraft availability until nightfall. In addition to the heavy emphasis on structure protection, firefighters will, as conditions allow, be holding and improving fire lines on more stable parts of the fire perimeter to the west and south.

@ASUAviator I have had that problem with *all* inciweb maps for at least several weeks now. Mac/Safari

Driving to & from Sedona today, looked there were several other fires northwest of Goodwin, like maybe on Mingus?

Yes - I copied that photo/map - at least they note a N arrow on the map to (hopefully) avoid confusion.

Listening to the police scanner for the area -- some absolute moron is flying a drone over the fire right now.

You've GOT to be kidding me. They've got air support grounded.
