GALLUP, N.M. (KRQE) – Crews should have the Asayii Fire on the Navajo Nation fully contained soon.
It’s scorched 23 square miles of forest and rangeland north of Gallup along the New Mexico-Arizona stateline.
Right now, it’s 80 percent contained.
Crews continue patrolling the area, securing fire lines, dousing hot spots and clearing debris.
Some roads are still closed, but most of the evacuation orders were lifted last weekend
