PHOENIX -- The San Juan Fire in northeastern Arizona appears to be on its last legs.

A Facebook page was created for the wildfire, and a post Saturday reported the blaze was 95 percent contained, but that the flames still comprise nearly 7,000 acres.

The fire originated on Thursday, June 26, about 18 miles southeast of Show Low. It has been burning on the White Mountain Apache Reservation and the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests. Officials determined it to be human-caused.

Nearly 200 personnel continue to work the scene, and officials are aiming to fully contain the blaze by Friday, July 11.

On Thursday morning, the incident management team commander lifted evacuation orders for three communities in the area -- Red Cabin Ranch, Whiting Homestead and Carlock Ranch -- as well as pre-evacuation notices for Green Peak Hideaway and Hidden Meadows.
