Mountain Fire

Post by joebartels » Jun 07 2019 7:22 pm

The Mountain Fire is burning on the Cave Creek Ranger District northeast of Scottsdale Arizona.

Air and ground resources have engaged the fast moving grass fire throughout the day. The fire is now north of the Bartlett Dam Rd. and east of Horseshoe Dam Rd. and is burning to the northeast in the vicinity of St. Clair Butte. No structures are threatened.

Bartlett Dam Rd is closed at the intersection with Cave Creek Rd.

Now reported as 5,000 acres (I noted the fire info update at 9 pm) and first reported just before noon.

Three major burns since 1999 that I can remember.
