Goodwin Fire has burned just under 25000 acres

Fire crews were successful in keeping the advancing flames from entering Mayer, due to previous fuels mitigation treatment in the area, but evacuations were ordered in more communities that had been given pre-evacuation instructions.

According to regional officials, the blaze was at just one percent containment on Thursday and the estimated containment date is July 4. Some structures had been lost, but it was unknown if they were homes or other buildings. "If the fire becomes established ... we'll be working with the Yavapai Sheriff's department to implement evacuation procedures (in Dewey-Humboldt)".

"It looked like five fires", Baker said.

The lightening-caused fire burning northwest of the town of Quincy increased in size from 16 square miles (41 square kilometers) on Wednesday to 74 square miles (192 square kilometers) on Thursday, the state Department of Natural Resources said.

Doug Ducey declared a state of emergency Wednesday that let him send additional funds to battle the growing Goodwin Fire.

In California, several smaller wildfires burned, including a new blaze threatening hillside homes in the Los Angeles suburb of Burbank, and the so-called Hill Fire along the state's central coast. "This emergency declaration will ensure every necessary resource at the state's disposal is made available to assist firefighters and provide aid to displaced residents".

Late last night the fire entered the city of Panguich's watershed.

Overnight Tuesday through Wednesday morning, firefighters were establishing a perimeter around Mayer with bulldozers carving fire breaks.

The evacuation remains in place for Pine Flat. Those scheduled for a hearing during this time will be notified by mail of the new hearing date.

The Dewey-Humboldt Magistrate Court remains open unless they are forced to evacuate.

He said the critical fire area in the Southwest is expected to shrink on Thursday, but not for long.

A Red Cross shelter for evacuees was set up at Bradshaw High School in Prescott Valley.

The Salvation Army's Emergency Disaster Services team has been mobilized. In addition, flying a drone during air operations put the lives of firefighters at risk. "Now you can smell it so that's a little worrisome because it might be blowing toward us". Citizens should contact their local land management agencies or visit www.utahfireinfo.gov for current fire restriction information in their area. Violators will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

On the National Forest, operating any internal combustion engine from 9 a.m.to 8 p.m.is prohibited.
