More than 100 miles southeast of that fire, the Yarnell Hill Fire also is 90 percent contained, and evacuations have been lifted, but the damage obviously is much greater.
That blaze killed 19 firefighters and wiped out houses in the area.
Both fires are expected to be completely contained within the next week.
