The Maverick Fire is burning near Hells Hole in the Mazatzal Wilderness. It is creeping along the ground within the Willow Fire Scar. Smoke may be visible from State Highway 87 (Beeline Highway) and nearby areas. There are no structures, homes, or other developments in the area, which is in a remote area, limiting access by firefighters on the ground. The Forest Service is monitoring the fire closely by air.

Hikers on the Arizona Trail are advised to use caution as they travel through the area.
