On Thursday, October 24, 2019, at approximately 5:30 p.m., the vegetation fire near Quail Ridge was turned over to federal fire resources from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Now known as the “Mesquite Fire,” the area will be managed by a coordinated group of wildland units, ground crews, and watercraft from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, and the Buckskin Fire Department as a federal resource.

Full containment of the area is expected to take several days and residents should anticipate periods of smoke, flame, and/or smoldering between London Bridge Road and the water, while crews manage the vegetation. The area is being monitored and there is no cause for alarm. Access to the area may be restricted and residents are urged to remain clear of the immediate boundaries. Anyone found west of London Bridge Road may be detained.

Residents are also asked to remain alert while navigating London Bridge Road. Motorists may encounter fire units along the roadway this weekend and may encounter roadside vegetation clearing in the coming weeks.

The cause of the fire is under investigation and has been turned over to Wildland Fire Investigators and Federal Wildlife Officials. Anyone with information about the cause of this fire can contact the Fire Department at (928) 855-1141 or Silent Witness at (928) 854-TIPS (8477).
Call Terrie Haas, Fire Administration, at (928) 854-0758 for further information.
