The fire that has been burning around Northern Arizona's Oak Creek Canyon for more than a week is now almost fully contained.

Today, Slide Rock State Park reopened for the first time.  Fire officials say the fire is now 90 % contained and has burned over 20,000 acres.  

Approximately 200 firefighters and other personnel remain at the site, including our own Northwest Fire hot shot team.
It's believed to be human caused and remains under investigation.
