The Coldwater Fire, approximately 4 miles south of Clints Well, was slowed yesterday by rain and thunderstorms which rolled through the Mogollon Rim area and are in the forecast for today.
Growth from yesterday’s burnout operations was minimal, with 50 acres being burned. This brings the total fire acres up to just under 2,300 acres.
Fire crews will continue to secure the fire area and conduct hazardous tree removal along sections of state Route 87. Arizona Department of Transportation is on scene to manage traffic, as needed, for cutting operations along Route 87.
