Brown Fire burning in southern Arizona

Arizona firefighters have a new fire to battle.

The Brown Fire started Sunday in the Huachuca Mountains in the Coronado National Forest south of the Valley.

Coronado National Forest spokeswoman Heidi Schewel says the fire covers five five acres and is in a remote wilderness area with nothing threatened.

Schewel said the fire is burning through brush and pine at a high elevation. 

An air attack, helicopter and two air tankers on scene, according to Schewel.

Officials said ground crews will move in Monday.

The cause is under investigation, but crews believe it is human caused since there is no evidence of lightning in the area.
