Schultz Fire Update

 

Flagstaff, AZ –   The Schultz Fire started at approximately 11:09 am on Sunday and is located west of north Highway 89, east of Flagstaff, and north of Mount Elden.  The fire is currently 500 acres and growing with 0 percent containment.   No structures have been lost.  Power has not been affected in any neighborhoods.  

 

Multiple resources have responded including the U.S. Forest Service and surrounding fire departments.  Entities assisting with the effort include the United States Forest Service, the Coconino County Sheriff’s office, the Flagstaff Fire Department and Northern Arizona University.  An additional incident management team has been ordered for the Schultz fire. 

 

The Coconino County Sherriff’s office has evacuated 1,044 structures in the Timberline neighborhood, the Wupatki Trails neighborhood and the Second Chance Animal Center.  Animals from Second Chance Center will be evacuated to Fort Tuthill County Park. 

 

The Sherriff’s office has issued a pre-notice for evacuation for the Fernwood neighborhood.  The Sherriff’s office is recommending that individuals who are evacuated ensure they take prescriptions, important paperwork, pets, a change of clothing and water. 

 

The Arizona Department of Transportation has closed Highway 89 northbound at Silver Saddle.  ADOT is allowing local traffic through the closure. 

 

“I want to assure all the residents of Timberline Fernwood that the County, in cooperation with multiple agencies, are doing everything possible to aggressively respond to this fire,” said Chairwoman of the Coconino County Board of Supervisors Liz Archuleta.  “Our priority is to keep all of our residents safe and avoid danger to their lives and property. My staff is at the evacuation shelter and will be providing information and assisting residents.”

 

“The City of Flagstaff remains in a State of Emergency,” said Mayor of Flagstaff Sara Presler.  “We’re working around the clock to address the Hardy Fire in an orderly and safe fashion, but we’re not out of the woods, yet.  The Schultz Fire presents significant challenges, and we are working in strong partnership with Coconino County, the US Forest Service, NAU and numerous local fire departments to swiftly secure our community.”  

 

Residents can expect heavier columns of smoke.  If you are in the area and have respiratory problems, you are advised to remain in place or leave the area.  Please consult the Coconino County Health Department website at http://www.coconino.az.gov/health.aspx?id=6564 regarding potential hazards dealing with smoke inhalation.

 

The Red Cross has set up a shelter at Mt. Elden Middle School at 3233 North Fourth Street, Flagstaff.  Evacuees are encouraged to register at Mt Elden Middle School to ensure information can be relayed. 

 

The Salvation Army is reporting that no material donations are needed at this time.  However, if individuals are interested in volunteering or financial donations, please call United Way of Northern Arizona at (928) 773-9813.

WOW!  Just amazing pix!

We're worried down here in the Valley since we had so much rain this winter, and now everything is pretty much kindling waiting to ignite.....Hopefully they get the fires under control soon!

One question. Why is this being called "Schultz" fire? Is that the name of an area, or a property, or a person? Just curious since my maiden name is Schultz. lol

Thanks everyone!

Schultz is the name of the road and area the fire started. It was named after someone, I can't remeber the details though.
