We have some bad news to report today from the Gladiator Fire that started in Crown King over a week ago. Two more structures were reported as having burned today. I do not have any information on where these were or who’s cabins they were. The only info I have is that for the last couple of days fire crews have been reporting 10 homes as in danger near Towers Mountain. Our hearts go out to the owners of the two structures that burned today.
The Gladiator Fire is currently being reported to be 14,184 acres and is only 15% contained. Fire crews continue to focus on gaining control of the fire’s Western flank.
We will have more updates this evening, but we wanted to give everyone the latest update along with the most recent maps of the Gladiator Fire.
As always we appreciate your comments and the people that have shared our posts on sites like Facebook. Thank you for the support of the town and for the cabin owners.
