Green Gate Fire

Shortly after midnight on May 22 Walker Fire was dispatched to a wildfire subsequently named the Green Gate Fire. It was located just off of Big Bug Mesa Rd a little ways past Amulet Mine Rd.

The fire was approximately five acres over extremely steep terrain that was heavily forested and had a lot of dead and down inside the fireline.

We received help from several Prescott National Forest hot shot crews and Central Yavapai lent us a water tender.

We had 14 Walker firefighters on scene who engaged in tasks ranging from line construction, pumping water up to the head of the fire, shuttling water tenders and mopping up. Included in the 14 were four firefighters who drove up from Phoenix in the middle of the night to help. For several of our crew this was a 12-16 hour day of fighting fire.

We will be involved with more mop up work on Thursday.
