UPDATE – The Bighorn Fire
If COVID-19 wasn’t enough, a wildfire started in the Santa Catalina Mountains on June 5. A lighting strike during the night ignited dry brush and shrubs.
Officials said the Bighorn Fire is “at around 17,000 acres” with 30 percent containment as of Tuesday, June 16.
The set area includes Mt. Lemmon, Mt. Bigelow Organization Ridge Road and Summerhaven.
The fire burned east through Romero Pass overnight into Tuesday morning, but there was not much growth.
A Forest Service official said the fire is probably “at around 15,000 acres,” but didn’t have an updated measurement. He said there is also fire high in the west fork of Sabino Canyon and Game and Fish personnel are busy working to save some at-risk wildlife and “endangered fish.”
Residents of Mt. Lemmon and Summerhaven were advised on Sunday, June 14, to get “SET” to evacuate. This advisory status remained in effect on Monday morning. But it turned to a “GO” evacuation notice as of 1:30 PM on June 16.

Tucson Homes Newsletter June 2020 – TUCSON MLS REPORT – May 2020
The Tucson Housing Market May 2020 report shows COVID-19 slowed home sales during May. But year over year prices increased and home inventory fell to new lows. Now below 1,700 single family homes on the market. That’s a 1.5 month supply. Now the question – How low can it go?
May’s Median and Average Sales Prices for single family homes are up 2.0% and 0.9% respectively from May 2019. The Year Over Year gains make owning a home in Tucson an attractive investment with mortgage rates under 3.25%!
Condos and Townhouses median sales price and average price lost ground in May. Dropping 4.2% and 0.3% respectively.
