Tunnel Fire burns Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument 'in its entirety'

Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument has burned "in its entirety" in an out-of-control wildfire in northern Arizona, the National Park Service has confirmed.

In a Facebook post Wednesday, park officials said the popular monument, northeast of Flagstaff, was completely burned over by the Tunnel Fire.

The enormous blaze in Coconino County, first reported Sunday afternoon, has burned more than 20,000 acres and forced hundreds of residents to evacuate.

"Sadly, Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument has burned in its entirety," the Facebook post read. The visitor center remained untouched at the time of the announcement.
