Woodbury Fire, Roosevelt Bridge

Command of the Woodbury Fire has been transferred to the Arizona Central West Zone Type 3 Incident Management Team from the Type 1 Incident Management Team, continuing the goals and objectives as fire crews continue their work. As complexity of the incident decreases, the organization continues to right size the workforce with the gradual demobilization of resources.

Containment of the Woodbury fire has reached 68 percent. Fire crews continue to put out any hotspots along the fire’s edge. Pockets of vegetation continue to burn inside the fire perimeter posing no threat to the fireline.

Suppression repair efforts resume along the perimeters of the fire where crews are repairing dozer lines, chipping downed trees and hauling out equipment and debris. The repair is intended to help the area recover quicker and minimize the effects caused by the fire suppression effort

State Highway 88 is closed from Tortilla Flat to the junction of State Highway 188 as crews continue to monitor the fireline. Apache Lake, Apache Campgrounds, picnic sites and trailheads remain closed. Tortilla Flat businesses are still open.
