TUSAYAN, Ariz. (AP) - A wildfire burning south of the Grand Canyon now is fully contained.

 

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's 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.

 

Fire management officials say the wildfire was called 100 percent contained at 3 p.m. Thursday.

 

The cause of the fire that began Wednesday afternoon remains under investigation.
