Prescott fire Engine 71 was dispatched to an Odor Investigation at 2:35am. After an extensive search involving Prescott and CAFMA crew the fire was located west of High Valley Ranch Rd. Crews initially hiked into the fire and found approximately a 1 acre fire actively burning on all four sides with 2-4 foot flames in a very steep drainage.
First responding engines constructed hand line around the fire while more crews worked to make access with Engines and a water supply system. Fire progress was stopped, and crews deployed hoseline’s around the perimeter of the fire to assist with complete extinguishment and control. At approximately 7am Resources from the Prescott National Forest arrived on scene and command of the incident was transferred to the Forest Service. Crews continued to mop up the fire into the day.
