Summary: At approximately 5:56 pm Prescott National Forest received multiple calls of a wildfire burning on Granite  Mountain. Firefighters were able to locate the fire last night and monitored it through the evening. Today fire managers  plan to continue to monitor the wildfire as it is burning in the Granite Mountain wilderness in very steep and remote location with poor access. The lightning caused wildfire is burning within the old Doce Fire where many snags (standing dead trees) pose hazards to firefighters along with the inclement weather from the monsoonal storms. The Granite fire may be visible from multiple locations around the Tri-City area.
