The Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) and the Pima County Public Health Department announced today that an out-of-state visitor with measles traveled to Tucson between April 17 through 29 and may have exposed the public to the disease. The person was potentially contagious and may have exposed the public at the following locations during the listed times:

Fire crews will begin burning wood piles from forest thinning on Mt. Lemmon February 11 through 15, weather permitting.

Burning will occur along the Catalina Highway, and in Marshall Gulch, Sabino Work Center, Summerhaven and Whitetail Campground. Approximately 100 acres will be burned.

“This project is intended to reduce hazardous fuels adjacent to local communities,” said Santa Catalina District Ranger Charles Woodard. “It’s part of an ongoing fuels reduction project to reduce the threat of wildfire.”

The Southern Arizona Chapter of the American Red Cross has deployed 3 local volunteers to assist with the fatal bus crash that occurred Thursday afternoon near Gallup, New Mexico. A team of Red Cross volunteers from the New Mexico Chapter and Phoenix Chapter arrived on the scene yesterday. They will join more than 20 Red Cross volunteers who are already deployed to New Mexico.

The cooling center is at Ellie Towne Flowing Wells Community Center at 1660 W. Ruthrauff Rd., Tucson, 85705 and will be open to provide a respite from the heat.
