SUMMERHAVEN, Ariz. (AP) - A weekend brush fire on Mt. Lemmon briefly closed the mountain’s main highway.

The U.S. Forest Service says the fire Saturday near Summerhaven was human caused and is under investigation.

Crews had containment lines around about 40 percent of the fire Sunday night.

The fire broke out about 2 p.m. Saturday.
