W 2 Fire 95% Contained
Incident: W 2 Fire Wildfire
Moisture received during the last 24 hours has brought relief to firefighters working two fires on the Coronado National Forest. The W 2 Fire, which has scorched approximately 530 acres along the international border 9 miles east of Nogales, Arizona, is now 95% contained. Resources assigned to that incident, which numbered 160 fire fighters last week at its height of activity, have been reduced to an engine and assigned operators who are patrolling and mopping up the fire perimeter. Little smoke is being detected from the fire today. Full containment is anticipated soon although the fire’s Mexico side is still being monitored closely.
