Aircraft temporarily grounded due to today's weather on the Brooklyn Fire
7/08/2017 - 8:57 pm
The Brooklyn fire is burning 8 miles northeast of Black Canyon City and is approximately 22,000 acres. The fire was highly impacted today by strong gusty and erratic winds from passing thunderstorms. Those winds caused the fire to push south and east and caused aircraft working the fire to be temporarily grounded due to the weather.
Incident managers are working with county law enforcement to continually evaluate the fire situation in areas where homes and property have the potential to be directly affected. There are NO evacuations in place at this time.
