Highway Is Firebreak for Blaze Near Sedona

June 22, 2006|From Times Wire Reports

Firefighters near Sedona burned some fuel from the path of a wildfire that moved into a scenic northern Arizona canyon, threatening hundreds of home there, but still faced a battle to keep it from moving any further.

Firefighters were using Highway 89A, which runs through the center of Oak Creek Canyon, as a firebreak to halt the advance of the 2,585-acre fire.

"We've kind of drawn some lines in the sand and we're going to be working hard to solidify them," said Sedona Fire District Chief Matt Shobert.
