KINGMAN - The Pinion Pines subdivision was evacuated Tuesday night after thunderstorm cells caused a wind shift that increased the volatility of the Dean Peak Fire.

Fire crews, including the Pinion Pines Fire Department, conducted a burnout operation from Old Highway 93 along the DW Ranch Road toward Pinion Pines. Approximately 200 homes have been evacuated and the Mohave County Sheriff's Office has secured the area.

The fire, started by a lightning strike on Saturday, has expanded to 4,400 acres as of 7 a.m. today with zero percent containment.

An evacuation reception center is located at the Kingman High School at 4182 N. Bank Street in Kingman. The evacuation directive for the residents of Pine Lake remains in effect.

A public meeting will be held tonight at 6 p.m. at the Mohave County Board of Supervisors auditorium, 700 West Beale Street in Kingman. Fire managers from the Northern Arizona Incident Management Team will provide a fire update and answer questions.

Crews will be working in the communities of Pinion Pine and Pine Lake today as well as continuing the construction of indirect fire lines.

Old Highway 93 and Hualapai Mountain Road are closed. DW Ranch Road is closed at Intestate 40 to Atherton Acres and Blake Ranch Road is also closed except to local residents. Additionally, Wild Cow Campground will be closed until further notice.
