TUSAYAN, AZ - A wildfire burning south of the Grand Canyon is now 100 percent contained, according to authorities.
The Halfway Fire, about five miles east of Tusayan, has burned 286 acres on U.S. Forest Service and National Park Service lands.
Grand Canyon National Park spokeswoman Maureen Oltrogge says it was burning in an area that had been thinned in the past, allowing for moderate fire behavior.
Officials had evacuated Grandview Point, about 12 miles east of Grand Canyon Village, as a precaution but lifted the order late Wednesday.
Oltrogge says no other evacuations or closures were expected.
No structures are threatened.
The cause of the fire that began Wednesday afternoon is under investigation.
