Summary: The Goodwin Fire is burning in chaparral and ponderosa pine south and west of the junction at Senator Highway (FR 52) and County Road 177. This afternoon’s fire behavior was erratic and unsafe for firefighters working near Pine Flat as winds pushed the fire through dense fuels 2 miles to the east towards Brady Butte.
With safety being our primary objective, for approximately 2 hours firefighters were disengaged from their suppression efforts. When conditions allowed, firefighters resumed community protection efforts in Pine Flat and implemented back burning operations along Senator Highway. This evening crews will perform back burning operations along County 177 east of Pine Flat and continue efforts to protect values potentially impacted by the fire. The consistent message from leaders to firefighters tonight was “Nothing is worth you getting hurt”. There will be a public meeting tomorrow night. Please see information below.
Public Meeting: Tuesday, June 27, at the Mayer High School in Spring Valley, AZ @6:30 pm in the cafeteria. (17300 E. Mule Deer Drive, Mayer, AZ).
