Crews responded June 17 to the Echo Fire located south of Interstate 40 in the northeast corner of Williams just off city property on the Kaibab National Forest. Fire managers contained the fire by the next day.

The fire was relatively small because of a prescribed burn about two years ago that left the area without ground fuel.

The fire was less than two acres. Firefighters have not determined the cause of the fire.

Fire officials sent two city fire trucks, two U.S. Forest Service engines, a water tender and two patrol units to the fire.

According to the Forest Service, crews kept fire growth to a minimum with hoses surrounding the fire.

Smoke from the Doce Fire on the Prescott National Forest approximately 8 miles northwest of Prescott caused hazy conditions in Williams the same day.

As of June 24, the Doce Fire was 6,800 acres. Fire officials estimated the fire was 50 percent contained and expected it to be fully contained by today.
