A 7-mile stretch of Arizona State Route 88 remains closed due to a flood risk related to the Woodbury Fire.

That area is from several miles east of Tortilla Flat to just west of Apache Lake Marina turn-off. Due to run-off and debris flows that could be much more intense after a wildfire, there's a possibility of flash flooding from monsoon storms," said Caroline Carpenter, with the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Carpenter says the Apache Lake Marina is still accessible from State Route 188. She says she does not know when the section of the State Route 88 will reopen.
