FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Officials say material donations aren't necessary for crews fighting a wildfire burning in a popular northern Arizona canyon.

Coconino County officials and the managers for the Slide Fire said Sunday storage areas are at maximum capacity.

County spokesman Nathan Gonzalez says the agencies managing the blaze appreciate the numerous contributions including food, water and socks.

Gonzalez says anyone who wants to assist firefighting efforts can donate money or time to nonprofits such as the American Red Cross or the United Way of Northern Arizona.

The human-caused fire has been burning since Tuesday around Oak Creek Canyon, a scenic recreation area along the highway connecting Sedona and Flagstaff.

It has grown to 21 square miles and is 25 percent contained.
