SEDONA, Ariz., May 16, 2022 – The Wilson Fire, located 2.5 miles north of downtown Sedona (34°55'42.0"N 111°45'54.0"W), is now at a quarter-acre and 50 percent containment.

There's been no change in fire behavior since the fire was first reported at 1:30 a.m. today. The fire continues to minimally creep and smolder on a flat mesa in the Brins Fire (2006) burn scar.

The fire's spread potential is low due to light southwest winds.

Air attack has been released from the incident, but two engines remain on scene. The fire will be staffed overnight.

Smoke will be visible from the Sedona, Oak Creek and Munds Park areas. There are no closures at this time.

The cause of the Wilson Fire is under investigation.
