SEDONA, Ariz. — A community meeting has been scheduled in Sedona to update
visitors and residents on a wildfire burning in nearby Oak Creek Canyon.
The meeting is scheduled for 4 p.m. at the Sedona High School Performing Arts
Hundreds of firefighters are battling the blaze that started Tuesday about five
miles north of Sedona, just north of Slide Rock State Park. It has scorched more
than 11 1/2 square miles in the scenic recreation zone along a winding highway
between Sedona and Flagstaff.
Fire officials say the blaze isn’t spreading toward Sedona. But some business
owners are worried that it could mean fewer tourists over the normally busy
Memorial Day holiday.
