PHOENIX — All SET and GO alerts in northeast Scottsdale stemming from the Boulder View Fire burning five miles east of Carefree were lifted around 5 p.m. Sunday, the Maricopa County Department of Emergency Management (MCDEM) announced.

The orders were lowered from “GO” to “SET” status around 5 p.m. Saturday.

According to the Arizona Emergency Information Network’s website, the “SET” status notes that significant danger remains in the area, but that danger is not “imminent and life-threatening” like it is during “GO” status.

The “GO” order was previously in place for the area north of Dove Valley Road between 136th and 144th streets. The Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management (AZDFFM) reminded residents who are returning home to be mindful of crews working in the area.

The MCDEM also said orders for all other areas would return to “READY” status, which calls for awareness to community hazards.

How dangerous is the Boulder View Fire in northeast Scottsdale?

In an update shared Sunday around 5:45 p.m., the AZDFFM said the fire, which began Thursday morning, was mapped at over 3,700 acres with 64% containment.

Saturday efforts were focused on improving firelines and monitoring for excess heat within the blaze. The southeast side of the fire was getting the most attention, with hand crews and support helicopters engaged.

Resources on Sunday included six hand crews and three helicopters, further assisted by 16 engines and three water tenders. There are 244 personnel are currently assigned to the incident.

Additionally, Bartlett Dam Road at Cave Creek Road remains closed to the public.

Scattered showers could move into the area on Sunday, potentially helping to lower the temperature and increase moisture as crews work toward suppression and containment.
