Goodwin Fire burning in Prescott National Forest, Pine Flat evacuated

Deputies say residents of Breezy Pines should be prepared to evacuate if needed. The American Red Cross has set up a shelter for evacuees at Mayer High School.

A pre-evacuation notice was put in place for the rest of Mayer east of State Route 69 and other areas in the vicinity.

Drivers should expect delays on any alternate route.

The Goodwin Fire has burned approximately 4,399 acres in the Bradshaw Ranger District of the Prescott National Forest, according to the Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management. The fire was about 14 miles south of the Yavapai County city. A public meeting will be held June 27 at 6:30 p.m.at the school.

There was a possibility SR 69 would be closed because of the fire.

Crews are working to establish fire lines by using roads and natural features to slow the progression of the fire, which is working its way through dense chaparral more than 40 years old and Ponderosa pines.

More than 500 firefighters have been assigned to the fire.

Six hot shot crews, 10 Type II crews, 29 engines, four helicopters and two air attack planes were being used to battle the flames.
