Six homes have been destroyed due to a brush fire that first started on Saturday evening in Black Canyon City. The now third-alarm fire was first reported at a salvage yard around 6:30 p.m. near 21200 E. Smitty’s Street, firefighters said. The fire was thought to be extinguished, but just after 11 p.m. the same night, the fire flared up again due to strong winds.
The blaze has been dubbed the "Joes Hill Fire." About 35 people were evacuated on Sunday and allowed back into the area later that night. The fire is considered suspicious and is under investigation, fire officials from Daisy Mountain Fire District said.
