Area residents could see smoke from a lightning-caused fire that is being used to clean up dead brush and ground clutter. Prescott National Forest officials say the Castle Creek Fire started Sunday about six miles east of Crown King in the Castle Creek Wilderness. The fire has burned 100 acres, but its location is away from buildings and homes and is in a position to achieve multiple resource benefits. Smoke from the fire may be seen from Interstate 17, Dewey, Mayer and Prescott Valley. The fire is being monitored.
