  • Brooklyn, Bull and Cedar Fires Public Safety Closure Order


    The purpose of the temporary Area Closure Order is to protect National Forest visitor and firefighter health and safety by eliminating potential for members of the general public entering into the Brooklyn, Bull, and Cedar Fire areas and potentially dangerous adjoining areas around the fire which could be affected during extreme temperatures and unpredictable wind conditions, and to preclude any conflict with firefighting operations.


    USFS Law Enforcement Officers will assist in implementation of the order as they are available, and serve as liaisons with Yavapai County and the incident team. The incident team will requisition resources (SEC1 and SEC 2) to staff roadblocks and implement closure enforcement. This order becomes effective at 4:00 am on July 13, 2017 until 8:00 pm August 31, 2017 unless terminated sooner.
