Wildfire burning near Sonoita

TUCSON - A wildfire has broken out south of Tucson, near Sonoita.

It's in Cave Canyon, near Gardner Canyon.

Sonoita's Fire Department was the first on the scene; Patagonia firefighters also responded.

The Coronado National Forest has taken control.

A spokesperson from the Sonoita crews says they have a "good handle on it," and the fire should be contained by Wednesday night.

Crews are attacking the fire on the ground and a helicopter is dropping water from above, which firefighters say has been a big help.

The closest home is a mile and a half way and it is not threatened at this time.
