MCSO helps in rescue

KINGMAN - Deputies from the Mohave County Sheriff's Office lent a hand with the rescue operations in Supai Canyon.

MCSO Search and Rescue Units received a request for assistance from the Coconino County Sheriff's Office at 7:30 a.m. on Sunday.

Around 34 SAR volunteers from Bullhead and Lake Havasu cities and Kingman were immediately deployed to the area.

The SAR units assisted with the evacuation of residents from the canyon by operating a helispot, a command post where helicopters took off and landed near Supai.

Sen. John McCain and John Kyl are expected to visit Peach Springs today.
