A new wildfire in the Flagstaff area is under control.  Officials with the Coconino National Forest said on their facebook page that firefighters fully contained a six-acre fire Sunday night in the Schultz Pass, between Mt. Elden and the San Francisco Peaks, just north of Flagstaff...near the fire scar left behind by this summer's Museum Fire.


The Coconino National Forest will reduce the size of the closure area for the Museum Fire in Flagstaff Friday. The move will allow increased public access and recreation on parts of Mt. Elden.


The Tonto National Forest has lifted restrictions on building campfires, smoking and target shooting.
