PHOENIX -- A crew fighting the Slide Fire near Sedona, Ariz. found and saved a previously unknown historical cabin.

The find was announced via Facebook.

The crew was performing burnout operations north of Sedona when they noticed the structure.

Engine Boss Leo Holley and crewmembers from the Coronado National Forest identified this historical small cabin, tucked away in a steep side canyon, and right away recognized the importance of this exciting find.

The crew quickly removed fuels, constructed a fire line and removed debris to protect the cabin. They also placed a layer of protective fabric around the structure to protect it during burnout operations.

A log was taken from the cabin and sent to the University of Arizona for dating.
