Residents displaced by a deadly Arizona wildfire will be allowed to return home Monday morning.
Yavapai County officials confirmed Sunday that evacuation orders in Yarnell would be lifted at 9 a.m. Monday. About 700 were evacuated from the community northwest of Phoenix.
The American Red Cross will use a Yarnell church as the site for a new facility to help residents returning to their community.
The Red Cross said its recovery center opening Monday will be located in the Yarnell Community Presbyterian Church. Meanwhile, Red Cross shelters at Prescott and Wickenburg high schools will remain open for overnight stays.
According to the Red Cross, the recovery center will provide meals, snacks and water along with ice, cleaning supplies and other essentials.
Caseworkers, nurses and mental health volunteers will be available to help with residents' needs.
Evacuees are being allowed to return a week after they were evacuated due to the fire.
Residents must present identification containing their address to gain access to the area.
Fire information officer Jim Whittington said Friday there were three reasons for the delay. Crews needed to make sure 129 destroyed structures won't start another fire and they needed to fix power lines and poles and check every propane tank.
Residents of the nearby community of Peeples Valley returned home on Thursday.
