Fire rages near Blue Ridge, but chance of rain rising

Lightning caused 6,935-acre blaze in Jacks Canyon, but help may come from thunderstorms

Crews struggled with two Rim Country fires over the weekend, the lightning-caused Canyon Fire that charred 6,935 acres 15 miles north of the Blue Ridge Reservoir and the 40-acre Haufer Fire north of Tonto Basin. Neither fire has damaged any structures and crews remain confident they can keep the fires under control, especially with a 40 to 50 percent chance of rain forecast each day this week starting today.
