Coconino National Forest fire personnel are on scene at the Bear Fire tonight. The fire, reported near 3:30 p.m., is located northwest of Secret Mountain near the Secret Mountain Wilderness, approximately 17 miles southwest of Flagstaff.
The fire is approximately 9 acres in size.
Coconino National Forest Fire crews have the forward progress stopped and will continue clean-up and mop-up operations.
As the evening grows later the smoke from the Bear Fire will travel into the canyons, residents in the Seven Canyons Golf Resort area and in Sedona will probably be effected by this smoke.
