Firefighters have the Margo Fire 100% contained at 1,148 acres. The fire has been put in monitor status and the Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management has turned it back over to the Dudleyville Fire District. As of Saturday, all residents of Dudleyville were able to return home. There are no road closures in the area. The Margo Fire started around 9am, Thursday, April 8th within the Gila River bottom near Dudleyville in Pinal County. Hot and dry conditions, dense fuel, and windy conditions challenged firefighters throughout the day. Unsafe conditions, high fire activity, smoke impacts, and proximity of involved fuels forced the evacuation of approximately 200 residents of Dudleyville. A state fire investigator has confirmed the fire was human caused and is working to determine the ignition source.
