Arizona wildfires

Wildfires in Arizona, which are the second largest in state history, are spreading in several locations. The Wallow fire is the major blaze, but there are also the Murphy and Horseshoe Two fires in Arizona and the Miller fire in New Mexico. Winds and low humidity have hampered firefighters’ attempts to control the blazes.
