The American Red Cross Grand Canyon Chapter had 18 evacuees overnight in the Flagstaff shelter located at the Sinagua Middle School at 3950 E. Butler Ave. The shelter is part of the integrated response to the Slide Fire and is being staffed by Red Cross workers from throughout Arizona.
Meals at the shelter are being provided by The Salvation Army and small animals are being cared for at the Coconino Humane Association located at 3501 E. Butler Ave. in Flagstaff. At this time, donations of food and clothing from individuals are not needed, and are not being accepted at the shelter.
