OUTSIDE SPRINGERVILLE, Ariz. -- The U.S. Forest Service on Thursday reportedly revised the estimated acreage of the Wallow Fire from 389,000 down to 336,167 acres. The revision comes after the latest aerial survey.

During Thursday morning's briefing, Jim Whittington of the Bureau of Land Management said despite that revision, fire managers expect the fire to continue to grow in the coming days.
