A new wildfire was reported Monday night near McNary on the Fort Apache Indian Reservation.

Two teams were trying to contain the Gomez Fire that has burned five acres so far, fire officials said.

There were no evacuations, but a power line near the edge of the fire was threatened.

It was burning in a mix of pine and oak trees on a steep slope and there was no estimate for containment, fire officials said.
