The Tucson Arizona Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ is under evacuation precaution as the Bighorn Fire grows to 4,769 acres in southern Arizona.

According to the Church, the temple is under a “SET – be alert”, waiting for potential evacuation orders from the local government.

“The Tucson Arizona Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was put under a “SET- be alert” and ready to evacuate notice last evening. The temple has been temporarily closed since March and at this time has minimal staffing. We are grateful for those working diligently to protect our homes and buildings from the recent forest fires.”

According to FEMA, more than 850 homes around Oro Valley and Catalina Foothills are under evacuation threat. Residents near the affected areas are now urged to sign-up to receive government emergency alerts.
