SIERRA VISTA, Ariz. (AP) — Two wildfires burning in Mexico are creating hazy conditions in southern Arizona. Coronado National Forest officials tell The Sierra Vista Herald the Bull Fire burning about three miles south of the U.S. border has torched about 2,000 acres.
Authorities say the fire is located about one mile east of the similarly sized Pena Fire, which began March 12.
Dozens of forest service firefighters are assisting Mexican crews to tie the newer Bull Fire into the areas already charred by the Pena Fire in an effort to keep the burned acreage to a minimum.
