Additionally, the evacuation will be lifted for properties in Poland Junction on the east side of SR 69. Arizona Public Service (APS) has confirmed there is power in this area.
Please remember that fire personnel and equipment continue to access the area to continue ongoing firefighting efforts, so please drive slowly and offer the courtesy they deserve. It is through their efforts that some previously closed communities and roadways are now open.
The entire Goodwin Fire cooperators wish to thank the community for their patience and understanding. We are working diligently to open more communities affected by fire as soon as safely possible.
Fire Summary: The northwest and southeast sides of the Goodwin fire remain the most active. Due to inhospitable and limited access, crews will be working across the top and on the north side of Big Bug Mesa. Securing, monitoring and patrolling the entire fire perimeter safely by firefighters is paramount.
Mayer: Power was restored to the majority of Mayer yesterday. The utility facilities providing power to Mayer were damaged by the fire. APS is working diligently to restore power in and around the fire area. If your power is out, please be patient and let APS know by going to aps.com or calling their customer care center at 1-800-240-2014. Water is available at the Recreation Center in Mayer. If power loss has effected refrigeration of perishable foods, customers can be reimbursed for the purchase of up to 40 lbs. of wet bagged ice or 20 lbs. of dry ice.
