(Posted April 24, 2012, at 12:35 p.m.) The Cedar Fire is approximately 125 acres and burning east of Klondyke, Ariz.
The fire has shown more activity as the temperature increases and is burning in grass and brush. Fire crews are working both flanks of the fire and also on the ridge top.
Due to good suppression efforts and a burnout on the southeast side, crews stopped the fires’ spread towards the structures, and none are in imminent danger. The fire is 50 percent contained.
