SPRINGERVILLE, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say the wildfire raging in northeastern Arizona has now charred more than 430,000 acres. That's about 22,000 more acres since yesterday.
The U.S. Forest Service also says crews have the fire only 5 percent contained. That's down from an estimate of 6 percent last night.
The blaze has been burning since May 29, and has destroyed more than 30 homes and forced nearly 10,000 residents of Arizona's White Mountains to flee.
The fire appears to be moving into New Mexico. It's being pushed by stronger winds and officials say it began spotting across the state line last night. Additional firefighters and several fire engines have been sent to bolster forces already waiting in New Mexico, where it could threaten more towns and possibly endanger two major power lines that bring electricity from Arizona to West Texas.
