The Bighorn Wildfire grew to about 200 acres on Saturday. Officials with the Coronado National Forest said Saturday afternoon
that three hotshot crews were on scene working to contain the fire.

Tanker planes and helicopters have been dropping fire retardant and water on the fire burning less than a mile from La Reserve.

The wildfire has impacted several trails in the Catalinas: Romero Canyon; Pusch Peak; Pima Canyon; Finger Rock; Ventana Canyon.
