Coconino County Emergency Management (CCEM) and the City of Flagstaff have activated an Emergency Operations Center in support of the Museum Fire. The center opened at 1 p.m., July 21 and personnel are preparing and coordinating services.
The Museum Fire was first reported by the U.S. Coconino National Forest Service around noon on July 21 north of Flagstaff near Schultz Pass Rd.
An evacuation notice has been issued for the recreational areas of Forest Rd. 420 to Hwy 89 (Mount Elden Lookout) and Schultz Pass Rd. to private land. Coconino County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue is on-scene and assisting with the evacuation. A pre-evacuation notice has also been issued for the area of Forest Rd. 420 to Friedlein Prairie. If people see fire, they are asked to leave the area immediately.
If evacuations occur, CCEM will coordinate with the American Red Cross to set-up a shelter.
