The lightning-caused Walnut Fire, burning in Little Dragoon Mountain, has reached 63% containment with additional containment expected by end of shift today. The fire is 10,667 acres and the potential for further fire growth has slowed dramatically. Ninety-six personnel remain assigned to the fire. As the incident complexity decreases, resources will be demobilized so personnel and equipment can be available for new starts across the state and the region. Operations will continue to monitor and mop-up the fire and provide initial attack for any new fires that start in the area. A storm system is expected to move across the area over the next few days. Crews are prepared and prepositioned should new starts occur due to lightning associated with the storm.
