Sometime before 8 a.m. Wednesday, Copper Canyon Fire rescued a middle-aged man who tried to drive his pickup truck across Dry Beaver Creek. But the creek wasn’t dry, Copper Canyon Battalion Chief Dale Duns said Thursday as he described what he called a “dynamic rescue” that involved close to 40 of the county’s first responders. At about 6 p.m., Copper Canyon Fire received call that a man tried to drive his vehicle across Dry Beaver Creek in the area of Culpepper Ranch Road, according to Dwight D'Evelyn, public affairs supervisor with the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office. “His vehicle was swept down the creek,” Duns said.
