Pipeline Fire at 22,888 acres, 31% containment | Haywire Fire at 5,065 acres, 0% containment
Fires to transition to Type 1 team tomorrow
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz., June 15, 2022 – The Type 1 Great Basin Incident Management Team (IMT) 2 has arrived at the Pipeline and Haywire fires, and is shadowing the Type 2 California Interagency IMT 15. The Type 1 team will assume command of the incident 6 a.m. Thursday.
The Pipeline Fire is currently 22,888 acres with 31% containment and the Haywire Fire is estimated at 5,065 acres with no containment.
While critical fire weather continues due to dry conditions and high temperatures, lower wind speeds allowed aerial operations to resume and continue throughout the day.
In addition to using water and retardant dropping aircraft, crews will continue to look for opportunities to directly engage the fire with the intent to suppress the fire’s edge and to keep the fire from entering communities as it continues to move in a northeast direction. Crews continue to use the 2010 Schultz Fire and recent Tunnel Fire footprints to their advantage.
Current resources on the Pipeline Fire include 561 personnel composed of 12 Hotshot crews and 7 hand crews, 54 engines, 9 water tenders and two dozers.
Current resources on the Haywire Fire include 57 personnel composed of one hand crew, 6 engines, two water tenders and two dozers.
There are roughly 670 personnel working both fires and in a support role at the Incident Command Post. Aerial resources include 8 helicopters and one fixed-wing aircraft working on both fires.
The Coconino National Forest remains in Stage 2 fire and smoking restrictions. Information regarding fire restrictions can be found online at coconinonationalforest.us
The Haywire and Double fires have merged and are now being managed solely as the Haywire Fire.
