A wildfire that started in Mexico and spread to 11,903 acres is now 100 percent contained, according to forest officials.

Coronado National Forest officials said Friday that the Campini Fire has burned an estimated 50 acres in Arizona's Sierra Vista Ranger District and 11,853 acres in Mexico.

No structures were threatened in the fire, which started May 21.

Fire officials said Friday morning that they did a burnout on the Arizona side, and a blackline was constructed along the border to decrease the risk to the Coronado National Forest.
