Residents remain under evacuation orders because of Grapevine Fire
Residents near Prescott Valley remain under evacuation orders because of a lightning-caused wildfire.
Those living in Whitehorse Ranch were given Go orders Tuesday as the thousand-acre Grapevine Fire approached the community.
Fire crews say they’ve made progress holding and improving control lines but have not yet reported any containment.
A shelter has been set up at the Camp Verde Gym and more information is available through Yavapai County Emergency Management.
Meanwhile, firefighters on another lightning-caused fire in the area say they’ve now contained 40 percent of the blaze.
Residents near the Racetrack Fire, however, remain under a Set notification as it continues to burn in heavy fuels and rugged terrain.
Smoke from both fires could be visible from Prescott, Prescott Valley, Dewey and Highway 169.
