As of Sunday, Oct. 25, The Habanero Fire burning 15 miles southwest of Globe in the Tonto National Forest has burned 3,218 acres of land and is 25% contained. Forest authorities say a decrease in fire activity during the last day helped firefighters with containment efforts. The fire continues to grow at a slow rate while crews continue to use natural barriers and existing roads to tie in containment lines. The Forest Service says the threat to structures has greatly decreased and evacuations are currently not in place for the area.
