Hostetter Fire Update


The Hostetter Fire located approximately 20 miles north of Flagstaff and north of the San Francisco Peaks is now contained.

A fire line established around the perimeter of the six-acre fire late Tuesday evening is preventing the fire from increasing in size. Fire crews will continue to mop up hot spots within the area. Approximately 40 firefighters worked into the evening hours Tuesday.

The fire, which started from an abandoned campfire, is under investigation.

The Forest Service asks campers to take extra care to insure their campfire is out. Campfires should be dowsed with water and cool to the touch before leaving the campsite. Anyone with information regarding this abandoned campfire located near Forest Roads 418 and 9129D (Alto Springs road) call the Coconino National Forest at (928) 527-3600.
