Verde Ranger District fire managers plan to continue fuels treatments east of the junction of Highway 169 and I-17 starting Monday, Feb. 12 through Friday, Feb. 16; weather conditions permitting.   

Benefits from these treatment help to reduce hazardous fuels adjacent to the wildland urban interface and increase ecosystem and community resilience. 

Camp Navajo Fire Department is responding to a fire that was initiated in the southwest corner of Camp Navajo near Volunteer Canyon. The Gate 13 Fire started Feb. 6 during demolition operations. The Gate 13 Fire is approximately 830-acres in an area that precludes active fire suppression and remains within the established containment lines.

Camp Navajo Fire Department and facility equipment operators have cut firebreaks around 98% of the fire in an effort to contain the fire to its current boundary.
