SIERRA VISTA — Fire officials say winds cooperated Thursday in holding down a wildfire in southeastern Arizona and the blaze near Sierra Vista should be contained Saturday.
Incident management team spokeswoman Jonetta Holt says officials estimated the Canelo fire would be 80 percent contained by nightfall. It burned 4,208 acres as of Thursday, having destroyed three homes and burned a man listed in critical condition at the Maricopa Burn Center in Phoenix.
Crews focused on mopping up interior hot spots.
Holt says the blaze that began in grass and brush Tuesday, also burning five outbuildings and six vehicles, no longer threatened any structures.
Residents evacuated from a subdivision near Fort Huachuca returned home Wednesday.
