SEDONA, Ariz (AP) – Workers were battling a wildfire north of the Beaver Creek in northern Arizona on Tuesday afternoon.
Cocono National Forest officials said the wildfire was reported before 11 a.m. and the cause was being investigated.
He said the blaze, which covers more than 70 hectares and is moving northeast, did not pose any threat.
Forest officials said two hotspots were accompanied by two helicopters, two single-engine air tanks, two large air trucks and a fire engine.
He said the spread of thunderstorms in the area will affect the nature and direction of the fire as well as air and ground resources.
Smoke is rapidly disappearing, but at night when it enters the Verde Valley, the effect can be felt in the direction of the wind.
