Monsoon helping, but fire in Rincons is growing

By Christina Myers. CREATED Jul 27, 2014
TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - The Deer Head fire in the Rincons is growing, but the monsoon is keeping it in check for now.
 
The lightning-sparked blaze is now estimated to have burned 229 acres.
 
Crews will conduct back burning operations to establish a safety line.
 
Monsoon humidity is keeping the flames on the ground.
 

National park officials say Tucsonans may notice smoke settling on the east side from time to time. Several back-country trails are closed.
