Evacuation order lifted for fire outside Kingman

Posted: Updated:

KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities lifted an evacuation order for people who left their homes due to a wildfire in mountains outside of Kingman.

Fire officials say people are being allowed to return home because crews have made significant progress fighting the 8-square-mile Dean Peak fire in the Hualapai Mountains.

Protection lines on the fire have held despite windy conditions.

The blaze was 65% contained by Sunday morning.

People from the communities of Pine Lake, Pinion Pines and Getz Ranch are now allowed to return to their homes.

Officials say a lightning strike 10 miles southeast of Kingman sparked the blaze June 29.
