WILLIAMS, Ariz. -- Multiple crews responded to a small wildfire reported near Williams, Ariz., on Monday.

The Echo Fire is located south of Interstate 40 in the northeast corner of Williams just off city property on the Kaibab National Forest, according to officials.

At approximately 3:30 p.m. Monday, the fire was estimated to be less than 2 acres.

Resources include two city fire trucks, two U.S. Forest Service engines, a water tender and two patrol units.

The fire is currently burning on the ground only and crews are keeping growth to a minimum, according to Kaibab National Forest spokeswoman Holly Krake.

The area was part of a prescribed fire about two years ago that left minimal ground fuels available.  

The public should expect to see small amounts of smoke from Williams and along the adjacent portions of I-40.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
