TUCSON, Ariz. — Northwest Fire District crews contained a large green waste fire near Marana Sunday. Crews continued to work on the fire Tuesday.

NWF says fire crews responded to the fire at 5300 West Ina Road just west of Interstate 10.

Smoke conditions may be visible in the area for the next couple hours while crews extinguish the fire.

According to NWF, full extinguishing expected to take longer, and smoke may be visible through most of the day.

The fire did not threaten nearby structures or neighborhoods. Individuals who are sensitive to smoke are asked to remain indoors.

NWF says the large green waste fire has been fully contained, and smoke production is expected for the next day or two.
