The Assayii Lake Fire on the Navajo Nation remains at 20 percent contained.

It has burned nearly 13,500 acres.

So many people have stepped up to donate supplies to fire crews and evacuees that officials are now asking them to stop.

They say donation centers are overflowing with things like water, food and personal hygiene items.

The Navajo Nation says anyone still wanting to donate can give money to the Navajo United way.

It will all go towards fire relief.
