Yesterday and last night firefighters and air operations worked on securing values at risk threatened by hot spots and
active fire, primarily on the northeast portion of the fire, from Picket Post Mountain east to Six Shooter Canyon by
building dozer and handlines, burnouts as needed and structure protection. Today the fire is expected to be active and
aggressive, driven by gusty winds that could cause active runs to the northeast. Crews will continue building fire line and
scout for natural barriers, roads, old fire lines and mine pits that they can tie together to stop the fire spread. Crews will
also utilize burnouts to secure the fire’s perimeter.

EVACUATION SHELTERS: High Desert Middle School in Globe and Skyline High School in Mesa.
Gila County Emergency Management has activated a call center for information on sheltering if you evacuate due to
