I just spoke to the Mogollon Ranger District Ranger (Linda), and she says the Cabin Loop area has not been burned, but the trails there are closed for now, they just don't want anybody in that area. FR300 (Rim Road) is closed for some ways west and east of the fire fighting area, as shown on the inciweb map. (She says there's an updated Forest Order with more of the map showing "closed," but I don't see it on the FS website yet.) Knoll Lake CG had not been opened yet for the summer, but there is a host in that area preparing the CG -- she says it would still be possible to hike to Knoll Lake from the Tonto Fish Hatchery -- and so far, the wind is still blowing the smoke to the NE. It was cold and snowed up there a bit today, like in Flag. So far, no people have been hurt yet as a result of the fire, as far as she's heard.
