Updated Monument fire evacuations

The latest from the Cochise County Sheriff's Department:

Ash Canyon, Hunter Canyon, Stump Canyon (both upper and lower), Turkey Track, will remain closed until further notice.
Highway 92 closed at Hereford Road, south to Coronado Memorial Road throughout the night.
All locations on the west side of Highway 92 from Miller Canyon south to Ash Canyon will remain closed until further notice.
Hereford Road is closed until midnight between Moson Road east to Palominas Road.

Mandatory evacuation:
As of 8:30 tonight, all evacuation areas on the east side of Highway 92 will be re-opened to allow residents to return home and make more thorough preparations to evacuate as needed. All evacuated areas from today will be placed on pre-evacuation notice again first thing in the morning (June 17, 2011). This is from Ramsey Road and Highway 92 east to Moson Road, and south to Highway 92. We are anticipating that the above listed area will be in the mandatory evacuation zone for tomorrow no later than 10:00 a.m. and will most likely include additional areas northeast of Ramsey Road. Please be prepared to leave at a moment's notice, as that may be all the time you have.
