Here is 6/29/17

The Goodwin fire started on June 24. 2017 in the Bradshaw Ranger District of the Prescott National Forest, about 14 miles south of Prescott, Arizona.

6/26 report: The Goodwin Fire continues to burn in very rugged terrain to the south and west of the junction with Senator Highway (FR 52) and County Road 177. Fire crews have been working to keep the fire south of County Road 177, the Mayer-Goodwin Road, and away from the homes and communities to the north. So far they have been successful as the fire has been burning mostly eastward toward the 2015 SA Hill Fire scar. Yesterday the fire burned up and over Brady Butte.

At that time 6 hotshot crews, 10 Type II crews, 29 engines, 6 helicopter and 2 attack planes were involved, altogether 525 personnel.

Vigorous winds made the firefight very difficult and on 6/27, the towns of Mayer and Poland Junction, and some of the smaller communities in the area were evacuated and as of yet there is no news when people might be able to return to their homes.

Our hearts go out to our neighbors with out very best wishes.

Donations of food and clothing are gathered at the FAMILY DOLLAR at Cordes Junction.

On 6/26 the fire was about 8 miles north-west of Arcosanti and moving in a north-east direction.

The smoke plume casts a strange light over the Arcosanti building.

Highway 69 has been closed since 6/27, from the Highway 17 junction all the way to Dewey.

Latest reports can be seen on the wildfire link and on the local news channels.

The fire is still growing and only about 1% contained.
