The Forest Service has ordered a Type 1 Incident Management Team and additional resources to work on the Telegraph Fire, burning about 10 miles south of Superior, Arizona.
Terrain and weather conditions aided the fire’s growth and it is now estimated at 7,000 acres.
Pinal county officials have issued a “set” mode for Superior. Ready, Set, Go! is a nationwide program that educates residents about proactive measures to take before an emergency and actions to follow when communities are threatened.
