The Twisted Fire made itself known just after sunrise Wednesday just below the San Francisco Peaks, four miles north of Flagstaff. The fire burned about four acres between Schultz Pass Road and Forest Road 164 B before it was contained at around 8:30 a.m. The fire burned in a treated area which, coupled with very little wind, helped keep the fire at bay. City and forest service crews, along with a hot shot crew, worked to control the wildfire. The fire is believed to have been human-caused, since there was no lightning in the area at the time. The exact cause of the Twisted Fire is under investigation.
