SPRINGERVILLE, Ariz. -- A wildfire is burning on the Apline Ranger District of the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests near the Arizona-New Mexico border.

The U.S. Forest Service said the Cameron Fire has burned about 307 acres south of Luna Lake in Apache County.

It was detected Saturday at the size of 15 acres about two miles south of the lake.

It is believed to be human caused but is still under investigation.

The U.S. Forest Service said resources include the Black Mesa Hotshots, four engines, one Department of Ciorrections crew and one dozer. Crews completed a successful burnout operation Saturday night, and air support is no longer being used.

The fire was zero percent contained as of Sunday morning.
