Crews evacuated a nearby campground and Squaw Peak road as a precaution. They spent the night making sure it didn't get out of control.

The fire has burned about 250 acres. The PG Fire, as it is officially named, is 50 percent contained.

Firefighters don't expect to have it fully contained until later this weekend.

About 160 firefighters, two helicopters, and a fleet of retardant bombers are fighting the fire.
