UPDATE: Heavy wooded areas ignited by the Gate 13 Fire this week are still burning today at Camp Navajo. Rain and snow has reduced some burning timber to smolders; however, the moisture and cold temperatures have created mud and ice on the roads. Camp Navajo Fire Department is reporting no issues at this point and will continue to monitor the fire until it is 100 percent extinguished. #Gate13Fire

Happy Birthday, Arizona! We love serving our great state! #ArizonaStatehoodDay

UPDATE: Gate 13 Fire efforts are set to scale down. This decision comes with reports of 75 percent containment of the fire and a weather forecast favorable to fire suppression for the rest of the week.

UPDATE: Reduced winds and increased precipitation have improved firefighting conditions for those combating the Gate 13 Fire at Camp Navajo today.

UPDATE: The Department of Forestry and Fire Management joined the Camp Navajo Incident Command team located at the Camp Navajo Fire Department today as the Gate 13 Fire continues to burn on the installation. #Gate13Fire

UPDATE: Camp Navajo firefighters could not contain the Gate 13 Fire after wind gusts accelerated up to 45-mph and pushed the wildfire toward thick-forested areas east of Volunteer Canyon. This change forced installation leaders to initiate the next phase of their firefighting plan.

UPDATE: A morning reconnaissance of the Gate 13 Fire determined that increased winds of 20-30 mph, with gust up to 35, at Camp Navajo have significantly reduced the burn rate and spread of the fire. #Gate13Fire

UPDATE: Yesterday's efforts to widen firebreaks helped prevent overnight flair ups allowing for first responders to better prepare for affects from wind today. #Gate13FIre

Camp Navajo Fire Department has conducted proactive firefighting measures to help contain and suppress the Gate 13 fire in anticipation of high winds tomorrow. Follow for the latest information.

Camp Navajo Fire Department is responding to the Gate 13 Fire which is approximately 830 acres in size. Click below for more details. #Gate13Fire

Here are some #ThrowbackThursday snapshots of "Operation Winter Storm" back in January 2010. This severe #snow storm affected northern Arizona and resulted in a state and federally declared emergency. Emergency supplies were flown to Hopi Tribe and Navajo Nation lands due to snowdrifts up to 8 feet in some parts. Hay barrels were in high need for livestock in the area. #AzWx #AzEmergencyPrepared

We are proud to be a part of Arizona's spirit of service! #AZService
