The Adams Fire, which had a northeast Valley community on edge a week ago, is 100% contained, officials announced Monday morning. The wildfire, which started June 2, consumed approximately 5,000 acres of wildland before crews stopped its progress. Now that the fire is fully contained, Tonto National Forest will take command from the Central West Zone Incident Management Team at 6 p.m. Monday. Officials said smoke from smoldering could remain visible in the area in the coming days. The Adams Fire is classified as human-caused, although the details about how it started have not been released. Crews first responded to the scene in the Lower Sycamore area of Tonto National Forest, near mile marker 200 of State Route 87 (aka Beeline Highway), around 5:20 p.m. Sunday.
