OJO BLANCO FIRE
The Ojo Blanco Fire was started by lightning striking the east slope of Mt. Fagan in the Coronado National Forest, just outside of Vail, Arizona.
As of Sunday, the fire is now progressively moving faster downslope than in the last several days, prompting the Pima County Sheriff’s Office to make pre-evacuation notifications as a precaution for homes near the fire.
