PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - A wildfire burning seven miles northwest of Prescott now is 50 percent contained with full containment expected by Wednesday.
Investigators say the Doce Fire was human-caused, but haven't determined the exact source yet.
The fire began June 18 and has charred dense brush and timber in the Granite Mountain Wilderness.
Authorities say 465 homes were evacuated at one point.
The evacuation order for most neighborhoods was lifted Saturday afternoon and the Red Cross closed its evacuation center at Yavapai College on Monday.
Authorities say the fire has cost more than $3 million to fight so far, largely because of air support.
