PIMA COUNTY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Pima County Deputies helped with evacuations Monday morning in the area of Summerhaven on Mount Lemmon.

On Sunday areas south of the Palisades were under mandatory evacuation orders. Everything above was considered a pre-evacuation notice, according to PCSD.

The new evacuation order began at 6 a.m. Monday, according to PCSD.

The orders are in response to the Burro Fire burning east of the mountain and north of Redington Pass.

As of Monday morning, the fire has burned an estimated 14,000 acres and crews have not managed to establish any containment lines around it.

Earlier Sunday, PCSD closed the road to Mount Lemmon. Cars were turned around at the base.

Anyone in need of current information is directed to the Burro Fire hotline 928-351-7537.
