State ID: AZ
3 letter designator: TNF
Fire name: Woodbury
Location: Superstition Wilderness… US 60 West of Globe AZ
Reported acres: 5000+
Rate of spread: Moderate
Report on Conditions:
Structure threat: Structures and Arch sites in Fire Area
Resources: TNF resources, Shot Crews, SW Team 2 Type 1 IMT
State ID: AZ
Was in East Mesa yesterday and appeared weather had moderated fire activity. Fire didn’t start heating up until around 230pm.
IWA had a 10 tanker, T101, and another LAT available… plus assorted AA, ASM, and lead planes.
Anybody following this thing? 13000 acres last I heard… Need updated Intel please? And ty!

|Current as of||6/14/2019, 10:39:46 AM|
|Date of Origin||Saturday June 08th, 2019 approx. 01:30 PM|
|Location||5 miles NW of Superior, AZ|
|Incident Commander||Rich Nieto - Southwest Area Type 1 Incident Management Team 2|
|Coordinates||33.409 latitude, -111.199 longitude|
|Estimated Containment Date||Monday July 01st, 2019 approx. 12:00 AM|
|Fuels Involved||Primary carriers include invasive and native grasses at all elevations, with increased presence on lower slopes in Sonoran Desert ecosystem. Pockets of brush occur primarily along N and E facing lower elevation slopes and dense stands of brush, gambel oak and pinyon-juniper exist at higher elevation.|
|Significant Events||Fire spread remained active late in the evening last night. Poor overnight relative humidity recovery, extreme temperatures and increased heat sources contributed to active fire spread earlier than previous shifts. With increasing winds with todays shift, additional growth towards the W and NW continued, and is predicted to once again remain late in to the night as higher SE winds and slope reversal contributed to an active burn period.|
|Planned Actions||Continue working to increase containment using natural features and area trail systems|
|Projected Incident Activity||12 hours: Fire progression up to 1 1/2 mile are expected NW within the Wilderness. Progression to the S and W will continue and NE spread is expected to be minimal until brush fuel types begin to actively spread without the support of grass. Banking and flanking will continue with short uphill runs with topography.|
24 hours: Heat sources along the perimeter and unburned islands will contribute to consistent fire spread through grass within increased spread rates where brush and topography align. Spread distance of 1/2 miles will continue on active flanks. Areas aligned for upslope movement with consistent fuels will have increased progression.
48 hours: Consistent weather patterns, combined with an increasing fire perimeter, will continue spread rates up to 1/2 mile per shift, primarily to the W and NW. Drainage alignment to the NE of the fire area may alter spread rates and fire intensities. To the N, NE, and SW increased fire activity due to complex topography will be more prevalent.
72 hours: Consistent S/SW winds will support an overall flanking fire perimeter as fire moves deeper in to the wilderness with complex topography. To the NW, a change to more consistent brush fuel types creates the potential for higher flame lengths and spread rates if brush fuels become available.
Anticipated 72 hours: With continued triple digit temperatures and single digit relative humidity, brush and higher elevation fuel types will continually increase flammability, contributing towards higher flame lengths and spread rates, especially within the wilderness boundary.|

Ty! I know about this… Was just looking for current conditions which I found. Have a friend in the area and it’s pushing hard right now "Ok… From a friend in the area
The North West side is pushing hard, very gusty winds out of the west south west"
Woodbury Fire burning east of Phoenix, AZ. GOES-17 4-panel observing the fire location, intensity and smoke: Fire Temp RGB (top-left), Day Land Cloud Fire RGB (top-right), Visible (bottom-left), and 3.9um (bottom-right). Fire approaching 13,000 acres. @NWSPhoenix #GOES17 #azwx
They just closed some lakes and additional highways in the fire area…
For the first time this is visible from my door step about 120 miles Southwest of the incident… column is increasing in elevation and width
