PAYSON, Ariz. (AP) - The Sycamore Creek area near Payson is being temporarily closed due to impending monsoonal activity which poses the possibility of severe flooding.

The wildfire burn area is the upper watershed for Sycamore Creek.
Forest officials say there is little if any ground vegetation left to absorb and hold back rainwater in the burn area.
