FLAGSTAFF, AZ — Heavy rain near the Pipeline Fire burn scar is causing concern for flash flooding.

The National Weather Service issued a Flash Flood Warning for the Pipeline Burn Scar Thursday as monsoon thunderstorms dumped torrential rain on the area.

They added that debris flow would be possible along Schultz Creek and Upper Rio de Flag.

Residents are being warned to quickly get away from creeks and washes. Drivers are also being urged to turn around if they see water covering a roadway, and not drive through it.

A Flash Flood Warning was also issued for portions of Yavapai County, including Camp Verde, Middle Verde, Verde Lakes, Flower Pot, Fort Verde State Historic Park, and Rocking River Ranch State Park.

On Friday, the National Weather Service said the threat of flooding would continue.
