The Southeast Arizona Type Three Incident Management Team assumed command over the Contreras Fire this morning at 0600. The fire was mapped by Infrared Flight overnight at 1,670 acres, with no containment at this time. Hot and dry winds from the south/southwest are pushing the fire to the north/northeast predominantly. The fire remained active throughout the night and into the morning, moving through the drought stressed vegetation.
Smoke from the fire is visible from Sells and Three Points, however, it does not pose a threat to communities.
