Goodwin Fire Update Highway 69 Fully Open

Yavapai County Sheriff Office Update on Goodwin Fire

At 6am today, June 30, 2017, SR 69 will fully reopen between 169 and Mayer to all traffic. Additionally, the evacuation will be lifted for properties in Poland Junction on the east side of SR 69. APS has confirmed there is power in this area.

Please remember that fire personnel and equipment continue to access the area to continue ongoing firefighting efforts, so please drive slowly and offer the courtesy they deserve. It is through their efforts that some previously closed communities and roadways are now open.

Again, all the Goodwin Fire cooperators wish to thank the community for their patience and understanding. We are working diligently to open more communities affected by fire as soon as safely possible.

  1. The amazing thing about the firefighters is their relentless ability to fight and stop these wildfires as well as put their lives in danger. Although my home was not threatened in Prescott Valley by this fire, my heartfelt thanks goes out to all the people, employees and volunteers who have, and will, make this transition and cleanup possible for many people, as well as the animals. God Bless all of you.

  2. We do appreciate all the work the firefighters and sheriffs personnel are doing. I have a nephew-in-law who is a firefighter in Idaho. Has anyone looked at opening the roads from Prescott Dells Ranch Rd to S. Dewey Rd. to Kachina. This would allow many residents to return to their homes and there still could be road closures west of these road intersections for fire fighting equipment if needed. This would also give an “escape route” in case there is a major accident on #69 between Kachina and the Humboldt #69 traffic intersection light. This seems to be important with all the people coming up for the 4th of July weekend.
    The people from Phoenix can come up by way of #69, but local residents are still stuck. So while local residents are inconvenienced, strangers from Phoenix can come up here and enjoy our area. Thank you for considering this option.

  3. Thanks to ALL Hotshots, Fire Departments, Police and The Forest Service. You are all TRUE HERO’S! Your combined efforts literally saved the town of Mayer!
