Slide Fire Nearing 5,000 Acres, Zero Percent Contained
(Oak Creek, AZ) -- A wildfire burning north of Phoenix has scorched about 48-hundred acres and is at zero-percent containment. Tony Sciacca with the Prescott Fire Department says a dry winter and very little recent precipitation is creating extreme fire behavior. At least 20 elite Hotshot crews will help fight the Slide Fire today near picturesque Sedona, Arizona.
