Fire burns 15 acres of Tonto National Forest
Firefighters are attempting to get the upper hand on a
wildfire north of Young,
“It’s heavy mixed conifer fuels and it’s in a rocky steep area,” Pike said. “It started going up hill, is where they caught it and started working on it.”
Pike says the cause of the fire remains under investigation. It has already destroyed one structure and a precautionary evacuation has been ordered for a ranch and a subdivision in the area.
