Incident Photo for the Elements Fire

The Elements Fire was discovered on July 11 the result of area thunderstorms on July 10. The fire is located North of Kingman, AZ in the Cerbat Mountains approximately 6 miles East of Chloride, AZ. The fire is in rough and rugged terrain with very limited access by resources on the ground. The gusty and erratic winds from area thunderstorms, which have not provided significant moisture, have contributed to the fire's rapid growth. 

Crews continue to make progress on containment. There was minimal new fire activity on Tuesday. The status for Vock Canyon residents on the south side of the fire area has been downgraded from "SET" to "READY" 

Fire manager's and the Incident Commander are working closely with Mohave County Emergency Management and Mohave County Sheriff's Office.
