Crews Working Hot Spots and Mopping Up on Fire by Douglas
Phoenix, AZ (4/3/18) - Less than 24 hours after a 300-acre brush fire destroyed two structures, firefighters have the fire out and are now patrolling for hotspots and mopping up.
The Adobe Fire started yesterday around 3 pm and quickly moved through dry vegetation nine miles northwest of Douglas and west of the Bisbee-Douglas International Airport.
Heavy winds pushed the fire across Double Adobe Road and toward Highway 191 before crews were able to stop the fire’s movement.
More than 100 personnel, including the Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management’s Type 2 crews, local cooperators, and air resources, quickly worked to put out the fire.
The fire burned 335 acres and destroyed two outbuildings.
