Today, the Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, along with the Town of Cave Creek, began the process of assessing structure damage and preparing plans for a full and safe reentry.
As of 5 pm today, some residents will be allowed to return home. That area includes, Rancho Manana and School House Road. Also, MCSO has reduced the hard closure area, and evacuations will remain in place, for the area north of Spur Crossing and Grapevine and west of 60th Street and Fleming Springs.
APS is coordinating directly with emergency personal on scene at the Goodwin fire. We are ready to respond should we be asked to de-energize APS lines or assess damage, once the area has been deemed safe to enter. If your power goes out, please let APS know by going to aps.com or calling our customer care center at 1-800-240-2014.
