TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - A damage assessment performed by the Pima County Department of Transportation has revealed a first look at the devastation caused by the Bighorn Fire, which continues to burn in the Catalina Mountains.

A brief Facebook post explaining the purpose of the evaluation of infrastructure and overall damage included several photos revealing burned out areas, some burned property, such as a trailer and storage container and damaged guardrail posts.

Officials are concerned that a lack of vegetation in the burn area may lead to water runoff with faster flows, more volume and an increase in chance of flooding during a rainstorm.
