UPDATE: Kitt Peak in GO status; Contreras Fire grows to nearly 7,000 acres

TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - A fire burning in the Baboquivari Mountains has grown to 6,662 acres and remains uncontained on Wednesday, June 15.

Kitt Peak is in GO status and Elkhorn Ranch remains under SET status, meaning there is significant danger in the area and residents should be alert and consider voluntarily relocating.

Additionally, there is a closure on State Route 386, which is the road up the mountain to Kitt Peak National Observatory.

The Contreras Fire began north of the Baboquivari Peak on the Tohono O’odham Nation on Saturday, June 11.

smelling smoke every morning and evening last few days. so far only highway median fires on us. we actually have a little grass left that could burn this year, but hopefully it will rain tomorrow or Saturday. ugh so hot today!

I see on inciweb there is a little fire down on the Railroad between Dragoon and Sybil Road (not on us, but might go take a look after a while)
