Parker firefighters respond to the Willow Fire

The ‘Willow Fire’ continues to burn north of Lake Havasu City in an area called Mohave Valley.

It began in the Havasu National Wildlife Refuge on Saturday morning, according to Mohave County Emergency Management, and continues to blaze through willow trees and brush north of I-40. By Saturday night, smoke from the fire could be seen for well over a hundred miles in every direction, and firefighters from many area fire districts attended, including the Parker area.

The fire has charred almost 2000 acres so far and is fast-moving. Evacuations were in effect for around 150 homes.
