Northern Ariz. fire reaches 75 percent containment

FLAGSTAFF - Firefighters have reached 75 percent containment of a wildfire burning in the Coconino National Forest near Flagstaff near the Canyon Vista Campground.

Forest spokeswoman Heather Noel says the Fisher Fire near Fisher Point in Walnut Canyon about five miles southeast of Flagstaff was holding at 175 acres as of late Sunday.

Noel says firefighters on Monday will seek out hot spots and mop up deeper into the fire's perimeter.

Also on Monday, some crews and equipment assigned to the fire will begin to be released.

No structures are reported as being threatened.

The fire was first reported Friday afternoon. It's confirmed as human-caused but a specific cause hasn't been determined as an investigation continues.

A wildfire burned in the same area last year.
