‘Sister Wives’: Tunnel Fire in Flagstaff Threatens Brown Family’s ‘Coyote Pass’ Property
Sister Wives stars, Kody Brown and his three wives, Meri Brown, Janelle Brown, and Robyn Brown, are residing in Flagstaff, Arizona. With a fire raging through the area, fans are concerned for the family’s safety. Will the Sister Wives stars be forced to evacuate from their homes? Here’s everything we know.
Tunnel fire rages through Flagstaff, Arizona
On April 21, a wind-driven fire rages in the Flagstaff, AZ area, tearing through dry evergreens and brush. According to the Weather Channel, the fast-moving Tunnel fire has grown up to 32 square miles, burning many homes and forcing thousands of residents to flee the area.
The fire has burnt through a large amount of forest and rural homes about 14 miles northeast of Flagstaff, where most of the Sister Wives’ Brown family are currently living.
The blazes erupted across the state due to a yearslong drought, 50 mph wind gusts, and the absence of spring rain. Today, there are no reports of death or injuries; however, thousands of homes have been affected by evacuation orders.
The Flagstaff fire threatens the ‘Sister Wives’ Coyote Pass property
So how close is the wildfire to Sister Wives stars’ homes and their Coyote Pass property? A Sister Wives fan on Reddit used a map of the Tunnel fire and marked the properties where the Browns currently reside in Flagstaff. Check out the map below:
The fan captioned the post, “Flagstaff fire and sister wives approx locations.” They had a ket indicating the blue star represents the Coyote Pass location. The red star is Robyn’s home. And the purple star is Meri’s house.
According to the map, it appears that the Sister Wives fans are currently safe. However, the Sister Wives cast could be in the evacuation zone due to the chaotic winds and dry climate.
Did the Brown family begin building on Coyote Pass?
According to Radar Online, the Browns spent $820,000 on the 12-acre Coyote Pass property in 2018. Kody’s ultimate dream was to build one all-inclusive dream home on Coyote Pass for his wives to live in together. However, his four wives quickly shot down the idea in favor of having their own lots on the property to build their own homes.
The land had been split up into four plots. Until Sister Wives Season 16 and Kody decided he wanted to have his own lot. There has not been much progress on the homes on Coyote Pass.
In Touch confirmed there are no signs of building on the property. The outlet revealed that as of February 2022, there had not been any building permits approved for the property.
Another confirmation comes from Christine Brown and Kody’s son, Paedon Brown. He recently shut down rumors that there has been building on Coyote pass. A fan commented on Paedon’s TikTok (@paedonbrown) video: “Any chance this is the famous Coyote Pass and dad is finally building?” Paedon replied, “Zero chance.”
While there may not be any homes on Coyote Pass that are in danger, the property’s trees could fuel the wildfire. Hopefully, the Tunnel fire won’t put the Sister Wives stars’ lives, homes, or properties in jeopardy.
