A type 3 Incident Management team continues to monitor the Wildcat Fire in the Zacatecas Canyon area of Bisbee.

Cochise County said the fire is at 100 acres and is 30% contained.

The county said there are two areas of concern.

The first starts at Brewery Gulch and goes northwest to the fire zone. The second starts at the Highway 80/Old Bisbee exit and goes northwest through Old Bisbee on Main street and continues through Tombstone Canyon to the Highway 80 tunnel.

Those in the area should be prepared to leave if notified and be prepared to stay away from the area for 48-72 hours.

The American Red Cross has identified the Bisbee High School as an emergency shelter in the event evacuations are required.
