Arizona wildfiresPosted: Updated:
Crews are battling a wind-fueled wildfire fire at the base of Kitt Peak near Highway 86. The flames are spreading on the Tohono 0'odham Nation. The Coronado National Fire Service is helping. We're told an air attack is being used to try and gain ground on the flames, which are quickly burning through desert brush.
But it is only one of four wildfires burning in Arizona.
The Hunter Fire, burning in the Coronado National Forest near Sierra Vista is growing. This was a human caused wildfire that started Saturday. It's now destroyed 33 acres -- zero containment. Crews say they're holding the fire line a half mile from any structures.
The South Fork Fire in south-eastern Arizona is now 50% contained -- 88 acres burned. Its located south-west of Portal, Arizona -- west of Rodeo, New Mexico. This is also a human-caused fire.
Finally, the 89 Mesa wildfire is burning a few miles outside of Flagstaff. It's still the same size it was yesterday -- about 520 acres. It's now 95 percent contained.
