SEDONA, Ariz., May 28, 2018, For Immediate Release – Firefighters from multiple national forests responded to the Sycamore Fire this morning northwest of Sedona in Sycamore Canyon Wilderness.

The human-caused Sycamore Fire, now at 75 acres, was reported at about 10:20 a.m. by a member of the public and Turkey Butte Lookout, and it continues to burn in rugged terrain consisting mostly of pinyon juniper.

Initial reports put the fire within Coconino National Forest boundaries about 9 miles northwest of Sedona, burning toward the northeast. However, the origin of the fire has now been determined to be on the west side of the canyon, which is located on the Prescott National Forest approximately 14 miles northwest of Sedona. At this time, the fire has been kept to the west side of the canyon and light winds are pushing smoke toward the west/northwest.

Firefighting resources include four helicopters, two air attack resources, five crews, and three engines—totaling more than 100 personnel. No structures are threatened. An update regarding this fire will be provided tomorrow morning.

  1. I say make it mandatory to get a camping permit (free or $20 lifetime) just have to prove you can make a camp fire without gasoline, and be able to put out same fire , without permit you will not be able to purchase any camping gear or firewood period!!! That being said I am against more regulation for anything, but people just don’t pay attention to signs and think it doesn’t apply to them.

  2. I saw that but looking for more detail from other sources. Pretty much any fire right now would be human caused it’s just a matter of how. It’s probably not a coincidence that this happened Memorial Day weekend
