Utah wildfire torches nearly 6 more square miles

Utah wildfire torches nearly 6 more square miles

The fire was about 14 miles south of the Yavapai County city.

In California, a wildfire destroyed the home of "Big Bang Theory" star Johnny Galecki on a ranch in the San Luis Obispo area.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey said the fire is the state's top priority.

A fast-moving wildfire charred more than 7 square miles in north-central Arizona on Tuesday and forced the evacuation of the town of Mayer as a precaution, along with other areas.

The fire forced the evacuation of Mayer and Dewey-Humboldt along with several other communities, and one of the main roads into Prescott was closed.

Authorities said Tuesday that Mayer's post office has been closed until further notice because of the fire, which was fanned Tuesday by 35 miles per hour winds.

Many residents have painful memories of a 2013 wildfire that killed 19 members of an elite Prescott-based firefighting crew nearly four years to the date, and some struggled to leave their homes behind.

Ducey said his office is receiving constant updates from state fire officials.

Hundreds of residents packed the Bradshaw Mountain High school gym in Prescott Valley, Arizona, on Tuesday evening, over concerns of the Goodwin Fire.

Crews are working to establish fire lines by using roads and natural features to slow the progression of the fire, which is working its way through dense chaparral more than 40 years old and Ponderosa pines.

Officials evacuated the almost 1,500 residents in the Town of Mayer Tuesday, along with the area west of State Route 69, Poland Junction, Chaparral Hills, Breezy Pines, and Pine Flat.

"Fires are a very, very personal thing", Foulk said.

The county's Animal Disaster Services shelter said it was housing more than two dozen dogs and 11 horses.

Zerril Perkins in Dewey-Humboldt says he can smell the fire and is anxious it is headed in his direction. "We hope you support and appreciate that".

Residents of Mayer say they struggled to leave behind their homes.

A news release issued by the U.S. Forest Service said that reports of structures burned in the early stages of the fire have not yet been confirmed.

The fire has burned over 28 square miles (73 square kilometers).
