Tinder Fire State of Emergency Declared, 1000 Homes Evacuated

Smoke and haze around Colorado Springs from Arizona wildfire

The Coconino County Board of Supervisors has declared a state of emergency, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency has authorized funds to assist the state.

Strong southwest winds pushed smoke from the fires into Colorado on Monday.

The Coconino County Sheriff's Office on Sunday ordered the immediate evacuation for Mosqui Ranchettes, Starlight Pines, Clear Creek Pines, Tamerron Pines, Ponderosa Pine, Timber Ridge, Pine Canyon, Blue Ridge Estates, Ponderosa Pine and Mogollon Ranch communities.

"Public safety is a top priority and we're grateful for the first responders who continue to battle the Tinder Fire".

The Tinder Fire was 8,632 acres in size and 0 percent contained as of Monday morning. Firefighters also successfully held the fire on the west side, along the 95 road.

The Arizona Pubic Service, a state electric company, said via Twitter that it was "coordinating with emergency personnel" and was ready to de-energize lines if needed.

Wind conditions will improve for a short period overnight, he said, but it will still continue to be extremely dry.

Two other Arizona fires burned on Monday but were closer to containment than the Tinder Fire.
