Update and Maps of Sedona's Slide #Fire #wildfire

The Slide Fire burning 7 miles north of Sedona is still 0% contained, growing, and headed in many directions. One arm of the fire burned all the way up West Fork Canyon and over the rim of the canyon. Its now moving west along the plateau above, into what is mainly USFS land south of Flagstaff. Another arm of the fire is still threatening homes and businesses in Oak Creek Canyon and prompting more evacuations. Aircraft fighting the fire have been grounded due to crazy high winds.

Evacuations have been ordered for West Fork, Pine Flat, Butterfly Inn, Garland's Junipine Resort, Halfway, Cave Springs and other campgrounds and day-use areas in the upper canyon, though one business has already miraculously been saved. Communities south of Flagstaff -including Forest Highlands and Kachina- have been issued a pre-evacuation notice. Another source reports that it reached Pump House Wash, which may prompt evacuation of Kachina village. For the latest news updates on the Slide Fire, check out this video. 

True to my mapping nature, I'm posting the collection of maps I've come across below.
