The Long Fire is burning near Long Park, about 2 miles southwest of Mormon Lake Village and approximately 5 acres in size.
Firefighters are securing a line around the fire and chasing spot fires driven by wind. Multiple fire-fighting resources have responded, including three engines, two water tenders, one bulldozer, one 20-person Type I crew (hotshot) and one 20-person Type II crew (from the Arizona Department of Corrections Winslow Facility).
Coconino County Sheriff’s Office is monitoring the situation for the Mormon Lake area to determine if and when evacuations may be issued. More information will be shared as it is received.
