Pretty interesting from an operational standpoint, as of this morning the fire is divided into 3 branches with the Coconino, Prescott, and Kaibab each managing one until a type 1 or 2 team takes over sometime midweek.
Likely quite a few campers in the evacuation area they’re working to move out.

24,064 acres. The fire has made it into the bottom of Sycamore canyon and the concern is that it will get across the other side and start running up into the timber.
