I don’t have a lot of details - but east of Globe near 177/77/Hwy 60 - all with closures and evacs starting.

25,000 acres per latest twitter - evacs at Oak Flat campgrounds and pre-evacs in several other locations.

RFW in this area - down here in the valley it is major windy and dry also.

TNF is also working the “Mescal” incident - not sure which is where etc. that one is about 10K acres with evacs also.

Fire progression map here.

Based on the update from @SierraDon and the IR mapping, the Ops and Progression maps are way behind the actual fire.

Last night’s IR has it 51,010. Today’s Ops Map has it a little less.

Live 10 pm news shots and Twitter pics showing really active fire for this time of night and a wind INCREASE in the last hour.

Tomorrow expected a wind direction shift but still in the 25 mph range.

still has a big heat signature. any intel from IR flights? be interesting to see what tomorrows AC/containment figures will be. I do not think the present reported 74% containment will hold.[borders]=white&lat=0&p[0]=cira_natural_fire_color&opacity[0]=1&pause=0&slider=-1&hide_controls=0&mouse_draw=0&follow_feature=0&follow_hide=0&s=rammb-slider&draw_color=FFD700&draw_width=6


A lot of that heat signature seems to be the column according to ground intelligence.
