Evacuation Orders Lifted for Additional Timberline Neighborhoods and Businesses

CCSO

Flagstaff, AZ– After consultation with the US Forest Service Fire Management Team on the Pipeline Fire and the Summit Fire Department, the Sheriff’s Office is now allowing re-entry into additional neighborhoods and businesses in the Timberline Community.

The majority of the residents who were evacuated on Sunday due to the fast-moving Pipeline Fire are permitted to immediately return.

There are still some areas that will remain on “GO” evacuation status, due to fire personnel in the area and the fact that it is still not safe to enter.

The areas staying in “GO” and are NOT included in the current re-entry are:

  • Campbell Avenue west of Lupine Lane (Lupine Lane is now in “SET”)
  • Crestview Street west of Valley Drive (Valley Drive is now in “SET”)
  • Glodia Drive
  • Alice Drive
  • Saddle Avenue
  • Pinon Street
  • El Oro Drive
  • N Siesta Lane
  • E. Paintbrush Lane
  • Copeland Lane west of Rope Arabian Rd. (Rope Arabian is now in “SET”)
  • N. Copeland Lane, Tanager Drive, Barn Road, Peaceful Way, and Weed Lane

These areas continue to have fire crews actively working and assessing the fire as well as damages to structures and utilities. These hazards need to be deemed safe prior to allowing entry for the safety of the residents and crews.

There will be a heavy CCSO presence in the area to continue to ensure the security of the area as well as to monitor the fire. In the event circumstances change, notifications will be made via the Coconino County Emergency Notification System as well as door-to-door notification (if time allows).

We want to remind the citizens in the “SET” areas that they are still required to be ready to evacuate at a moment’s notice. A good example of this was the Tunnel Fire several weeks ago. There was only a matter of minutes between the “SET” notification and the “GO” notification. To sign up for Emergency Notifications visit www.Coconino.az.gov/ready.

Closures and evacuation status for the areas surrounding both the Pipeline and Haywire Fires are being re-evaluated continuously.
