The Coconino County Sheriff's Office announced Saturday that they expect to lift the pre-evacuation warning for Kachina Village and Forest Highlands at noon on Monday.

Mandatory evacuations remain in place for Oak Creek Canyon.

Residents will be notified via the CodeRED emergency notification system Saturday night with more information about the decision. About 1,000 residents evacuated voluntarily from the area.

Fire officials say the Slide Fire has burned 11,500 acres and is about 5% contained. They expect it to burn about 25,000 acres in total before it is fully contained.
