Alright. So once again this is for the tinder fire alright. The Forest Service investigators. Were able to access the, point of origin for, the tinder fire and have, found the cause to be an abandoned. Illegal. Campfire, during. Stage 1 fire restrictions, the. Fire was reported by, the mochi tower lookout, on April 27th. At 11:43. A.m. and, began, near, Forest Road 95. Approximately. One and a half miles east, of CC. Cragin reservoir. It quickly. Spread to the bottom of East Clear, Creek Canyon and strong. Southwest. Winds drove, the fire in a northeast, direction up the canyon and towards. Private property and residence, located, about, three, miles away. Anytime. We we enter restrictions, or have even closed the forest we, still continue, to find abandoned. And illegal. Campfires, said, Andy Peterson, Forest. Service, Patrol captain, for northern Arizona this. Shows extreme, lack of care for Public Safety and our natural resources, when people would, have an illegal campfire much, less abandon, an illegal, campfire. Finding. The person responsible for, this illegal, campfire will, be difficult, as witnesses. In the forest are often non-existent, but, Forest, Service law enforcement, investing, and investigations. Are continuing, to, investigate this, case and are. Hopeful for progress. If. Anyone, was in the area of Forest, Road 95, near the origin, of the tinder fire on April, 27th. And has information that, could help this investigation please. Contact forest. Service law enforcement. At 9 - 8 5 - 7. Three, five one one. The, tinder fire is currently, over eleven, thousand, four hundred acres, with, 0%. Containment and. More, than, 550. Personnel. Working, to control and, extinguish. The. Wildfire, all. Right so that is what we went over while the audio was out once again I do apologize for, that, I'd.
Say We have some more specifics. On the. Tinder fire here. Excuse. Me. So right now it's estimated at, eleven, thousand, four hundred and twenty acres. Based on infrared, data and the containment, is it still at zero percent it started, on the 27th. And the cause, we, just told you there it was an abandoned, campfire, and abandoned, illegal, campfire during. Stage, one fire, restrictions. The. Original, location, was was one, and a half miles northeast, of the Blue, Ridge Reservoir. Its. Jurisdiction. Is inside, the Coconino, National Forest. Right, now it is burning timber, grass, and the, understory. Let's. See there are currently. 559. Personnel. Including, 15. Crews, six. Helicopters. Forty, fire engines, three. Bulldozers. Ten, water tenders, what, water tenders and overhead. Increased. Cloud cover yesterday. Shaded, fuels and helped, limit fire spread no. Additional, fire growth occurred, within local subdivisions. Or on, the north end where there's a transition, to pinyon-juniper, vegetation. The east flank was the most active because, of continuous, heavy fuels. Yesterday. Firefighters. Continued, to provide structure. Protection and began, mop up in the communities, to help ensure all heat in the area is extinguished, crews. Also conducted. Burnout, operations. To help limit the fire spread, to the south for. Heavy helicopters. Dropped, water throughout, the day to support firefighters. On the ground, an approaching. Storm system will, result in strong, and gusty winds, into, this evening, fire, behavior, will be reduced, because of cloud cover and higher, humidity the, chance of precipitation begins. To increase over. The next few days. Today. Firefighters. Will focus on structure protection in the north and the northwest, strengthening. Lines on the west flank securing. Securing, lines on the east flank and continuing. To, patrol and mop, up the, south end. All. Right so, that was some, updates there on the tinder fire. Let's. See Oh something. Else that is very important. Right now to increase, capacity due. To the high volume of calls coming in the Coconino call, center is adding, an additional, number for, Blue Ridge, evacuated.
Residents, The. Additional, number for, residents, to call is nine, two eight two, one three, two nine. Nine zero. People. Calling and giving their contact, information, is that is the best way for the county to directly communicate, with people on any, assessment. Or re-entry, information. When the time comes without, contact, information, the county will not be able to communicate specific, individual. Information directly. To those affected individuals, people, can also keep, trying to call the previous, call center number at nine two eight six. Seven nine eight three, nine three. They. Ask that you please share this information any, way. You, can. Along. With the tinder fire there, was another fire the long fire, burned. Seven, acres near, Mormon, Lake Sunday. So, yeah, there was a couple of days ago but they, wanted us to get that out there for you, coming, up soon this is a big one guys all, campfires, are banned on Coconino.

Feature, film, about the Navajo servicemen, who while, speaking a complicated, code in their Danai tongue were, able to broadcast, crucial. Allied messages, to each other that their japanese foes were unable to decipher, during, World War two that, ability has been cited, by many military. Figures, and historians. As helping.
