Oak Creek Canyon is closed north of Slide Rock State Park due to a working fire.

Smoke pours into Sedona through Oak Creek Canyon in the early hours viewed from 11,000 feet above Sedona on Thursday, May 22, in a motorized glider operated by Theodore Grussing of the Village Of Oak Creek. The Slide Fire has consumed apporximately 20,000 acres and still spreading with 35 percent containment.Emergency responders are turning back vehicles at the entrance to the canyon near the Sedona Arts Center.

The Slide Fire is located in Oak Creek Canyon just north of Slide Rock State Park and burning northward, up the canyon into places such as West Fork and Harding Point. As of Monday, June 2, the fire had burned more than 21,200 acres -- an area the size of Manhattan -- sending smoke into the Verde Valley. The fire is the worst in the history of the Coconino National Forest.

No structures have been burned, although more than 300 are threatened. The fire nearly reached structures near Pine Flats.

At its peak on May 26, resources include approximately 1,230 personnel, 36 crews, 15 Hotshot crews, 51 engines, three air tankers, nine helicopters, two air attack and other resources. As of June 2, personnel had dropped to fewer than 200, as the fire was 90 percent contained.
