Wildland fire handled quickly thanks to multi-agency response

Prescott, Central Arizona and Prescott National Forest firefighters responded to a wildland fire in the area of Centerpoint East Drive and Dells Canyon Drive in North Prescott Sunday, July 2. Firefighters were able to get a fast wet line around the fire, limiting it to approximately 1.5 acres. Lyn and Steve DeLano, whose property sits right above the ranchland that caught fire, told the Courier that police and sheriff’s deputies were knocking on doors in their neighborhood telling them to be ready to evacuate within five minutes. “But thankfully, we didn’t have to,” Lyn wrote.
