The Miller Fire, which was confirmed at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, May 22, is smoldering at a low intensity in heavy dead and down fuels, and is located about 4.5 miles west of Slide Rock State Park (GPS coordinates: 34°57'21.2"N 111°50'05.6"W).

The fire was first reported on May 20, but due to weather conditions, aerial resources were not able to confirm the fire until this morning.

There are no structures threatened by the fire and smoke may be visible.

Additionally, there are no road or trail closures in effect, but visitors are asked to avoid the fire area.
