The Tonto National Forest Information Office is asking residents and visitors to keep their distance from firefighting operations at the Promontory Fire.
The fire is highly visible from the roads and communities below and poses a serious hazard. Traffic stopping along Highway 260 creates a considerable danger for all using the road.
Please do not stop along Highway 260 to watch the activity.
Though Highway 260 is not currently closed, avoid the stretch of this road near Christopher Creek if travel is not neccessary.
