CROWN KING, AZ - Fire officials say a cold front arriving over Arizona is providing additional relief to firefighters battling the Gladiator Fire and electricity is being restored to some areas.
A "mega moisture burst" Friday night increased moisture levels in the forest and is helping reduce the risk of new fires.
Winds from the west, southwest at 20-25 mph with gusts to 45 are expected and those winds will likely blow dust and ash.
Officials say the 16,000 acre Gladiator Fire, which started May 13 from a structure fire, is now 40 percent contained and has roughly cost $13 million.
The U.S. Forest Service says electricity has been restored to some communities that were forced to evacuate earlier this week.
