PRESCOTT, Ariz. -- A wildfire burning seven miles northwest of Prescott now is 70 percent contained with full containment expected by Wednesday.

Investigators said the Doce Fire was human-caused, but haven't determined the source.

The fire began June 18 and has charred dense brush and timber in the Granite Mountain Wilderness and forced evacuation of 465 homes.

The evacuation order for most neighborhoods was lifted Saturday afternoon and the Red Cross closed its evacuation center at Yavapai College on Monday.

Authorities said the fire has cost nearly $6 million to fight.
