Goodwin Fire
July 10, 2017, 1800 pm

Location: Bradshaw RD of Prescott National Forest;14 miles south of Prescott, AZ (T12N R1W, S28)
Start date: June 24, 2017, 4:00 p.m.
Size: Approximately 28,516 acres
Percent Contained: 100%
Cause: Under Investigation
Vegetation: Predominantly dense chaparral and ponderosa pine stands in drainages.

Fire Summary: Transition from a Type 3 incident management team to a Type 4 Incident commander is scheduled to take place at 6 pm this evening. The Goodwin fire is now 100% contained however smokes may be seen for several weeks as brush well inside the interior of the fire perimeter may smolder but present no danger of escaping established containment lines. Firefighters will continue to patrol the fire perimeter for the next several days as added assurance for public safety. Increasing humidity and recent precipitation have assisted in the containment of the Goodwin fire but have added to the potential for post fire impacts from flooding. Increased water flows in the Big Bug Creek area and its tributaries along with Turkey Creek and its tributaries are anticipated bringing mud and debris flow along with ash.

Additional flood information is available from the Yavapai County Flood Control District (http://www.ycflood.com/).

Reminder: Closures still remain in effect for the area. For maps of the area closure that is still in effect on the Prescott National Forest visit: (www.fs.fed.us/r3/prescott) or Inciweb (https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/5278/).

The forecast for the foreseeable future calls for monsoon rains. Residents in these areas should monitor the National Weather Service (weather radio or Web sources http://www.wrh.noaa.gov/fgz/), and/or local news media outlets for flash flood warnings due to increased risk of flooding in streams and washed below the Goodwin Fire burn area.

Evacuation Information Update

Evacuation Information Update

The Sheriff met with Fire Incident Commanders today and learned that ‘back burning’ operations are ongoing in an effort to assure a margin of protection from fire for the Walker and Potato Patch areas. As a result, it is not expected those evacuations will be lifted today, but potentially tomorrow. Again, fire behavior will dictate the final decision but crews are doing an amazing job in this endeavor.

All cooperators involved in the Goodwin Fire truly appreciate the community cooperation and support, and understand the desire of residents to get back in their homes. Please remember this fire-fighting strategy is critical to continued success and the goal of full containment.

Donations and the Red Cross

Donations and the Red Cross

The Animal Disaster Services (ADS) would like to say thank you to everyone who donated food and other items to the large animal shelter at the old rodeo grounds, or Coors building in Prescott Valley. As residents of the evacuated area return home, the number of large animals at the shelter has decreased and their needs have been met. ADS would like to say how grateful they are for the donations and ask that any further donations be held back at this time.

The Red Cross will be providing snacks and cleaning supplies from the Red Cross van, which will be located near the Circle K in Mayer for the next several days to those returning home from evacuation.
