Asayii Fire now 20 percent contained

GALLUP, N.M. (KRQE) – Crews have made significant progress battling the huge wildfire on the Navajo Nation.

The fire is now 20 percent contained.

With much calmer weather Thursday, crews were able to build quite a bit of fire line.

There’s still a lot of smoke and the evacuation orders remain in place.

The fire broke out one week ago today after officials say someone was burning weeds.

It’s destroyed at least five structures.
