Brooklyn Fire Complex Grows to Nearly 36K Acres Featured

The Brooklyn Complex Fire is in a remote area, but could threaten I-17 and structures in Black Canyon City. 

The name has been changed to Brooklyn Fire Complex to include two other lightning-caused fires: the Bull Fire and the Cedar Fire. Neither are threatening structures, and both are in remote areas. 

However, they do consider about 50-60 structures Northeast of Black Canyon City to be threatened now, although no evacuations are in place at this time. 

John Pierson’s Type 1 Incident Management Team is expected to take over at 6 PM tonight.
