NEAR SAGUARO LAKE, Ariz. -- Crews battled a small brush fire near Saguaro Lake on Monday.

The fire was reported just before noon.

The fire is on the southwest part of Saguaro Lake, just south of the dam, according to Chopper 3 reporter Tammy Rose.

A spokesperson for Rural Metro said the fire was likely started by a person. It's near a large public parking lot.

The fire appeared to be contained by 12:30 p.m, thanks in part to the calm wind. It is expected to smolder for awhile.
