FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -

Forest officials have shut down a popular lava tube cave near Flagstaff as crews tackle a small wildfire burning in the area.
 
The Wild Bill Fire has burned nearly 30 acres northwest of Flagstaff. It was 50 percent contained Friday evening.

According to Coconino National Forest officials, smoke will be visible from Flagstaff, Bellemont, Interstate 40 and U.S. 180 for the next couple of days.

Forest spokeswoman Brienne Magee says no structures are threatened by the fire.

"The fire generally burned across the forest floor on level terrain in ponderosa pine forest, with some individual torching," she stated.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio is pulling back the reins on his plans to quickly get rid of New York City's horse-drawn carriage industry, stung by a recent outpouring of support for the colorful coaches that have clip-clopped their way through Central Park for more than 150 years. A campaign pledge to take on the horses during his first week as mayor was eclipsed by other issues.
