KINGMAN - The Mohave County Sheriff's Office and Pine Lake Fire Department have issued an evacuation advisory for all residents in the Pine Lake and Hualapai Mountain Park communities due to the Dean Peak Fire.
The evacuation route is down Hualapai Mountain Road.
"All residents of the Pine Lake community and the Hualapai Mountain Park are requested to evacuate the area," said Mohave County Sheriff's spokeswoman Trish Carter.
The Red Cross has established a temporary shelter at the Kingman High School campus, 4182 N. Bank Street.
Hualapai Mountain Road is closed at milepost 4. DW Ranch Road at Hualapai Mountain Road also is closed, according to Carter.
Lightning sparked the fire at about 3:30 p.m. Saturday roughly 10 miles east of Kingman and east of Dean Peak.
The fire is burning brush, pinion, juniper and sporadic pines on Bureau of Land Management land.
There were about 100 fire personnel on scene Monday, with more on the way. As of midday Monday, more than 900 acres had burned. No containment was reported.
There are currently several engines, three Type I crews, one Type II crew, one Type II helicopter, one air attack, two air tankers, and overhead personnel.
The potential for the fire to grow is high as fuels are abundant, conditions are dry and the terrain is difficult.
The Type II Northern Arizona Incident Command Team took command of the wildfire Monday morning.
