WILLIAMS, Ariz. – Kaibab National Forest fire crews are working the 1,000 acre Eagle Rock fire, 11 miles northeast of Williams and east of Sitgreaves Mountain. The Eagle Rock Fire was detected by the Kendrick Mountain lookout this morning. Close to 50 residences in the Spring Valley area have been evacuated. The cause is unknown. The high winds and low relative humidities are making fire suppression activities difficult.
There are approximately 250 fire personnel on-scene and they will be working the fire through the night. Some progress has been made early this evening on the spot fires on the east side of County Road 141. Resources continue to arrive and the Northern Arizona Type-2 Incident Management Team will be managing the fire suppression activities.
