Fire officials in the Flagstaff area investigated a fire caused by lightning on Thursday near Upper Lake Mary.

Coconino National Forest officials responded to the Newman Fire, which had burned around two acres three miles south of Upper Lake Mary. The flames posed no threat to buildings or homes in the area, although the fire did produce smoke in the area. Fire officials said allowing the fire to burn could create important buffers to protect homes and infrastructure from severe wildfires in the future.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
