FINAL UPDATE: Parker, AZ – The Lost Lake Fire started May 26th on the Colorado River Indian Reservation 14 miles southwest of Parker, AZ. The fire burned along both sides the Colorado River in California and Arizona. Fire crews stopped the fire’s forward progress May 30.

After containment lines were improved and firefighters felt confident to leave the large fire with the local unit, a transfer of command from Barela’s Central West Zone Type 3 Incident Management Team back to the BIA, Colorado River Agency occurred June 1.

Due to the large fire area, firefighters will monitor containment lines to ensure there is no residual heat left in the fire area. Firefighters are patrolling to ensure all pockets of heat are out. Fire resources will decline in the days ahead as they complete work to repair dozer lines that may otherwise cause erosion.

This will be the final update unless significant fire activity occurs.

Management Objective: Key management objectives have been met allowing a transfer of command back to the Colorado River Agency tonight at 6:00 p.m.

Evacuations: NONE. There were no structures damaged or destroyed throughout the duration of the wildfire.

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