THE WYRICK FIRE
The Wyrick fire is South of the Ranch and has been moving east northeast, which is good for us but not for the Heber area. At 9:00 AM Monday (6/22), Dave Vogt reported that the heavy smoke he saw Monday had subsided. SR 260 between Payson and Show Low, and SR277/377 between Heber and Holbrook, are officially closed, but we’ve been told that property owners are being allowed through (check ADOT at the link below for current information). We’ve been advised that CCR should “get ready” for an evacuation, but it hasn’t been ordered yet (check "Fire Info" at the link below for current information). The Sheriff had an officer passing out information north of the main gate near the intersection of Ward Tank and Rock Tank Roads. We don’t know whether he still doing this or not.
