Post-fire debris flow closes Crown King road

Monsoon rains triggered what news reports are calling 'mudslides' that closed the road to the small mountain community of Crown King, north of Phoenix.    The video and photos suggest it was actually a debris flow.   The 27-mile long road is unpaved and was reopened last night, but closed again this morning for additional cleanup work, according to news reports. The slide area was burned in May by the  Gladiator fire causing the town to be evacuated.
