SEDONA, AZ (CBS5) -

Fire crews have the wildfire in the Kaibab National Forest 60 percent contained as of Tuesday morning.

Kaibab National Forest spokeswoman Jacqueline Banks said firefighters continue to hold the Secret Fire at approximately 15 acres.

Banks said a portion of the fire, that's approximately 15 miles northwest of Sedona, is on a steep slope that firefighters could not access. Water drops on that area have kept the flames from spreading, Banks said.

The U.S. Forest Service said the fire has a minimal chance of rekindling, but firefighters continue to monitor it and mop up the area.

Lightning started the fire on Saturday, according to Banks.

Banks said said no homes are threatened by the wildfire.
