According to the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office the area between I-10, Dragoon Road and Touchstone Road is currently in ‘SET’ status.

Another 5-acre fire known as the Adam’s Peak Fire is burning on the mountain range of the same name, just north of I-10 from where the Robles Fire is currently burning. Over the course of Wednesday, July 19, the Adam’s Peak Fire grew closer to I-10.

Fire leaders say drivers should proceed with caution when heading on I-10 in the area.
