In in the initial days of the fire beginning on May 29th, much of the news coverage about the so called "Slide Fire" north of Sedona was often times highly exaggerated and sensationalized. Since then we have been maintaining this information page for our guests to put things into perspective for arriving guests who may have concerns.
The wildfire was roughly between 11 and 17 miles north from us on the west side of Oak Creek Canyon.
As of June 4th, fire officials reported that the fire was 100% Contained. Their upadate today reports:
"The Slide Fire (located in Oak Creek Canyon and began May 20) was fully contained June 4, but is still smoldering in areas of West Fork, as expected. There may be times when smoke will be visible if a small pocket of unburned area in West Fork ignites. This too is to be expected and not unusual."
