The Prescott National Forest assumed command of the Horse Fire on Sunday, October 25 at 9:00 pm. The fire remains at 9,537 acres and is currently 74% contained. Although there is no threat of fire spread or potential growth; firefighters will continue to patrol and monitor containment lines. As a low-pressure system enters the area, fire officials anticipate that lower temperatures and high chances of precipitation will help to moderate fire activity; but will keep a close watch on the northeast perimeter as gusty winds are predicted for Monday evening.
This will be the final news release unless there are significant changes in fire activity
