Presumido Peak Fire: Southern Arizona wind-driven fire now completely contained

The Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management says a wind-driven fire that sparked near Sasabe in Pima County, close to the Mexico border, is now completely contained.

Fire crews say the fire burned a total of 2,591 acres by April 5.

The fire, dubbed the Presumido Peak Fire, was discovered on March 26 and by the next afternoon, it grew to nearly a thousand acres. The fire then spread to the Tohono O’odham Nation, the department said.

"Additional resources have been requested including a Very Large Air Tanker (VLAT) to help slow progression onto the nation. The fire has been very active all day & remains visible to multiple communities," the department said in a social media post on March 27.

On April 2, the department said, "Firefighters cont. to monitor & patrol the fire checking to be sure lines are holding & there is no interior smoke."

The fire was determined by officials to be human-caused, and about 70 firefighting personnel were assigned to the fire.
