SEDONA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

A wildfire burning northwest of Sedona has grown to 230 acres and is 25 percent contained.

Coconino County National Forest spokesman, Brady Smith, says the human-caused Sycamore Fire was reported at about 10:20 a.m. Monday near Taylor Cabin Trail and is producing smoke that will be noticeable to those in the immediate area, burning primarily in pinyon, juniper and grass in the wilderness area.

Smith said fire investigators have determined the origin of the fire is on the west side of the canyon, which is located on the Prescott National Forest approximately 14 miles northwest of Sedona. At this time, the fire has been kept to the west side of the canyon and light winds are pushing smoke toward the west/northwest.

There was minimal fire activity overnight, according to firefighters. The plan Tuesday was to continue building lines around the perimeter.

With five helicopters, one air attack, three hotshot crews, one fuels crew and one engine, there are more than 100 people working to contain the Sycamore Fire.

No structures are immediately threatened at this time and the wildfire is moving in the northeast direction.
