SAN CARLOS, Ariz. -- Firefighters are concerned high winds and dry conditions could fuel a wildfire burning in eastern Arizona.

The Barlow Fire is burning on the San Carlos Apache Reservation. Fire officials said it has burned 440 acres since it started Saturday afternoon. It is heading in a northwesterly direction.

There's a lot of Douglas fir and ponderosa pine in the area.

According to an update Sunday afternoon, a power line along Road 1700, IDT Ranch and the Seneca Ceremonial Grounds were at risk.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
