Arizona Mountain Fire Shows No Sign of Slowing Down – 9 & 10 News

Planes are taking to the sky to fight a fire in the Arizona Mountains that has exploded to more than 6,000 acres.

It’s being called the mountain fire, and according to Tonto National Forest Officials, there was still zero containment of the fire as of Friday night.
