Small brush fire contained in Redington Pass

TUCSON- Forest Service Fire crews corralled a small brush fire in Redington Pass Sunday morning, about a mile from where a larger fire burnt nine days ago.

Fire Information Officer Gerry Perry says the fire near Mile Post 7 on Redington Road was first reported around 8 a.m.

Crews quickly contained the fire to about two acres.

The fire nine days ago scorched 88 acres near Mile Post 8 on Redington Road.

According to the Forest Service, both fires were human caused and started near the road. The exact cause of both fires is still under investigation.

Perry wants to remind visitors to all National Forests that fire restrictions are in place, including a ban on outside smoking, fires, target shooting, pyrotechnics and open flames from torches or welding.
