fire guyThere will be no merger of the Northern Arizona and Lake Mohave Ranchos Fire Districts. The board of the Northern Arizona District voted 3-2 Thursday to terminate further contemplation of consolidation.

Fire Chief Pat Moore said the Lake Mohave Ranchos Fire District is now in the position of calling for a spring election to select its own board of directors. That board would hire staff and administer the district serving the Dolan Springs and Meadview area as it wishes.
