KINGMAN, AZ – Firefighters continue to make progress in suppression of the Dean Peak Fire which is now at 37% containment. Despite very windy conditions, containment lines held and burnout operations were not necessary as previously thought in containing the fire close to the Getz Peak communication site.
Containment line is complete in Wheeler Wash to the south and west of the fire and the fuel break on the north side of Pine Lake Community is also complete. Crews continue to work in the communities of Pinion Pines and Pine Lake to ensure there are no hotspots present. As a result of this work, no reentry date has been set for residents.
Some resources are being released from the Dean Peak Fire and are moving to other assignments as this fire becomes less active.
The mandatory evacuation order for the Pine Lake and Pinion Pines subdivisions remains in place. Old Highway 93 and DW Ranch Road are closed and Wild Cow Campground will remain closed until further notice. Blake Ranch road is closed except to local residents. The road closure at M.P. 4.6 on Hualapai Mountain Road has been moved back to the intersection of DW Ranch Road and Hualapai Mountain Road.
