Junipine wildfire in Oak Creek Canyon fully contained

OAK CREEK CANYON, Ariz. -- A small wildfire in northern Arizona's scenic Oak Creek Canyon that forced the evacuation of about 40 people has been fully contained.

Infrared mapping showed the Junipine Fire charred about 7 acres.

Authorities believed the fire was sparked by a downed power line. No structures were threatened.

The Junipine Fire was north of the remains of the Slide Fire, which broke out last month and burned in rugged terrain for more than two weeks.

Coconino National Forest spokesman Brady Smith said some interior pockets were still smoldering in the canyon's West Fork.
