Fire on Apache reservation nearly contained

A fire on the Fort Apache Reservation in Arizona was 95 percent contained as of Sunday night.

Authorities had ordered the evacuation of three tribal communities. But the order was lifted as the 110-acre blaze, believed to be human-caused, was under control.

The reservation, home to the White Mountain Apache Tribe, was damaged in the summer of 2002 by the worst fire in state history.
