A self-serve sandbag station has been set up in Tonto Basin for area residents.

The bags and sand are for Tonto Basin, Jakes Corner and Punkin Center residents to prepare for any “post-fire flooding from the Bush Fire,” said Michael O’Driscoll, director of Gila County Health and Emergency Management.

Bags and sand have been set out near the entrance to the Gila County Tonto Basin Yard, 225 Old Highway 188 in Tonto Basin.

Bring a shovel.
