    A friend told me that the news was reporting that Crown King is evacuating. A fire is burning near it. Anyone have any details???

    As of Friday, I'd heard it's on the west side of the mountain. Back then no structures were being threatened but I guess that's changed.

    Just read the article in yesterdays paper. It says that a Level one team has set up a headquarters at Mayer High School. Firefighters were observing flames 30 feet tall.

    Doesn't sound to good for Crown King. Hope they beat it back I like that town.

    cruised up I-17 the other day, you could clearly see the smoke from the fires on the hillside, flames wern't high enough to see though, plenty of smoke,,,this was on the west side of the freeway.

    Looked pretty decent sized too, haven't heard of any evacuations from that area though, the one farteher up north i have heard about them getting the funk outta dodge though

    I camped up there a few years ago. Beautiful area. It's a shame that those fires are burning...
