The Redington Fire burning east of Tucson is now 80 percent contained and burned less acreage than initially estimated. 

The human-caused fire consumed 30 acres in Redington Pass since it started Saturday and crews are working today to complete a containment line and mopping up hot spots, said a news release from the U.S. Forest Service.

It was initially estimated that the fire burned 125 acres. 

"This inaccuracy was due to ocular estimates that were deceived by steep terrain within the fire area," the release said. 

Crews used measuring devices Sunday to get a better estimate of the burned area. 

Redington Road has been reopened but motorists are asked to use caution in the area as large vehicles used to fight the fire may be using on the road.
