The Sour Fire, which was reported on Sunday, January 17, 2021 is now 100% contained. Yesterday, the fire received rain bringing much-needed moisture to the interior of the fire. Firefighters plan to patrol and monitor the fire as very little interior heat remains with minimal smoke.
There have been two unrelated wildfires on the Prescott National Forest in the past few weeks. Once again, we would like to remind the public that a wildfire can happen at any time of year and that abandoned campfires are still the leading cause of human-caused wildfires.
