Fire near Elgin burns 450 acres

ELGIN - Multiple agencies are working to contain a fire near Elgin that has already burned 450 acres.

The Research Fire was caused by a pick-up truck working in the area that caught on fire around 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

The fire is near Babacomari Ranch. Dry grass and desert shrubs are fueling it.

For now, 30% of the fire is contained but the challenge for this fire is the wind, which is making the fire change directions and burn faster.

So far no homes or buildings have been threatened.
