Fire caused by remote control airplane near Cave Creek and Jomax Roads extinguished

PHOENIX (FOX 10) - Fire crews on Sunday responded to a second-alarm brush fire west of Cave Creek Road and south of Sonoran Parkway. The fire is now officially extinguished.

Crews say the fire started after 2:30 p.m. near a remote control airplane field at Cave Creek and Jomax Roads. According to a witness, his remote control airplane crashed which caused the fire.

Once crews arrived on the scene, the fire was already at 10 acres. The fire was then escalated to a second-alarm fire and wildland crews were dispatched to the scene.

Crews have stopped the fire, but Arizona State Forestry says closures will remain in place overnight.
