The Assayii Lake Fire zone will be closed to residents and the general public Friday due to high wind.

Officials say the area is unsafe for travel because of the chance of falling trees. They're asking the public to stay off the mountain and away from restricted areas.

The fire is 90 percent contained and has burned more than 14,000 acres on the Navajo Nation.
