A WILDFIRE forces evacuations in Arizona as firefighters continue to battle the blaze.
The pipeline fire started Sunday morning and is burning six miles north of the city.
An evacuation order is underway for parts of the Flagstaff area.
“Recreation seekers in the area should depart immediately, particularly those in the Schultz Pass area down to Ft. Valley Trailhead,” officials said.
Those residing in the West Schultz Pass Road and Arizona Snowbowl areas must be evacuated.
Firefighters told local FOX affiliate that the fire was “active on all sides.”
According to officials, several mornings have already been burned down.
Helicopters and additional emergency resources have arrived on site.
The fire burns near the burn scar of the tunnel fire.
More than 20,000 acres burned back there in May.
