Monsoonal activity has provided relief and moderated the fires activity. Most of the areas where heavy fuels were burning have subsided in recent days, and smoke impacts to nearby communities should be minimal.
Operations: Fire crews will continue to mop up and extinguish any remaining hot spots and will patrol containment lines to mitigate any threats. The Hog Spring fire transitioned from a type 4 incident management team to a type 5 fire organization today, with Incident Commander Jakob Gormally.
Safety: There is no immediate risk to infrastructure or property, and there are no evacuations in place. There are no road closures, however, the public is advised to avoid the 283, 267B and the 9045 roads for firefighter and public safety.
Weather: The forecast is calling for a 40% chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms, winds up to 15 mph and a high of 83 degrees.
Restrictions: The Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests is in Stage II Fire and Smoking Restrictions, learn more at: https://www.fs.usda.gov/alerts/asnf/alerts-notices/?aid=73318. The Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests will rescind all fire restrictions on Friday, June 24th at 6:00am.
