    Suspect Arrested Just Hours After Powerful Wildfire Explodes

    Published on

    A day after evacuation orders were issued, a wildfire continued to blaze north of Flagstaff, Arizona, on Monday.

    A man was arrested in connection with the Sunday morning fire, which was reported soon before 10 a.m. Authorities did not disclose any potential charges against him.

    According to KSAZ-TV, the Pipeline Fire had spread to 4,500 acres by the end of the day on Sunday, six miles north of Flagstaff where it began.

    The Coconino County Sheriff’s Office posted on Facebook that a man was arrested in relation to the fire.

    “Responding Deputies were given the description of a White Pickup truck leaving the area of the fire. Responding Deputies spotted a vehicle matching the description and conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle,” it stated.

    “The driver, a 57-year-old male, was detained until Federal Law Enforcement Officers from the United States Forest Service arrived. The male was arrested by Forest Service Law Enforcement Officers and booked into the Coconino County Sheriff’s Detention Facility for Federal Natural Resource Violations. Federal regulations prohibit the release of the subject’s name, photo, and charges,” the website stated.

    Almost 700 households were told to evacuate, with another 2,410 warned that evacuation may be necessary, Coconino County spokesman Trey Williams said Sunday, according to CNN.

    The fire, fueled by high winds, advanced about 15 miles Sunday, officials said.

    The Pipeline Fire is not far from where a wildfire known as the Tunnel Fire blazed across almost 20,000 acres of Arizona in April. Read more…
