Parker, AZ – The Lost Lake Fire started May 26th on the Colorado River Indian Reservation 14 miles southwest of Parker, AZ on the west side of the Colorado River in California. The wind-driven fire, now approximately 5,900 acres is 44 percent contained.   

Highway 95, between 2nd Avenue (MM 6) and Vidal Junction (MM 46), is now OPEN. There are no other road closures in effect. 

Evacuations: Lost Lake Resort community.  

Management Objective: Key incident objectives include safely protecting both the residential communities of Lost Lake and Hidden Valley Resorts and keeping the fire from crossing the Colorado River into Arizona. Firefighters are effectively containing the fire as weather conditions now favor more rapid suppression efforts.   

Operational Update: The fire is most active on the northeast flank. Firefighters are using heavy equipment, aircraft and engines to keep the fire from the Agnes / Wilson Road and to protect the communities of Lost Lake and Hidden Valley Resorts.  

BIA Colorado River Electrical Services is working to restore power. The company should have power restored by this weekend to Lost Lake Community; however, due to damage on power lines BIA Power continues to work on restoration to Hidden Valley we hope to have that restored by Tuesday or Wednesday at the latest.  

The health and safety of firefighters and the public are always our first priority. Please stay away from the Lost Lake Fire area to allow fire personnel to safely work. 

A fire update will be released when significant activity occurs. Visit InciWeb for the most current fire information. 

 

Safety: For residents needing assistance, Red Cross has an evacuation center at the Parker Senior Center.  

Primary and Cooperating Agencies: Bureau of Indian Affairs, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Forest Service, Riverside County Fire and other cooperating entities.
