Discovered: Monday, June 4, 2018

Location:  5 miles northeast of Heber/Overgaard, Arizona

Percent contained:  55%

Size: 4833 acres

Cause: Human Caused

Vegetation: Pinyon-Juniper, grass understory

Personnel Assigned: 280

Update: Crews working on the 377 fire faced weather related challenges today including low humidity, gusty winds, blowing ash and debris, and frequent dust devils traveling through the fire zone. Observed fire behavior included single tree torching and multiple hot spot flair-ups in the interior portions of the fire.  Hotspots near the fire line were extinguished as they occurred as crews continued to secure and reinforce the fire line. Today’s efforts resulted in a significant increase in the containment percentage.

Two firefighters on the fire lines received minor injuries in separate events during today’s operational period. Each was transported to a local hospital, treated, and released.

Tomorrow crews will continue with reinforcement, mop-up, monitoring, and patrolling of the fire lines.
