The Fuller Fire burning north of the Grand Canyon is 65 percent contained.

With significant containment efforts made, the park service has reopened the roads to the popular Point Imperial and Cape Royal viewpoints.

While the overlooks are open, nearby hiking trails will remain closed for safety reasons as there is still significant fire damage in the area.
