  • Arizona 3 acre fire proves very destructive

    TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A 3-acre wildfire destroyed several
    buildings and shut down a road in Summerhaven, a Coronado National
    Forest Spokesperson said.
    Gail Aschenbrenner, spokeswoman for the Coronado National
    Forest, said the fire broke out in or near a cabin under
    construction about 2:30 p.m. Wednesday.
    The blaze destroyed the cabin, two outbuildings and a travel
    trailer, she said.
    The cause of the fire is under investigation by Pima County
    officials, Aschenbrenner said.
    She did not know what agency the officials were from.
    Crews were working on the fire Wednesday night. It was still
    burning, but was not expected to spread, she said.
    The Mount Lemmon Fire Department issued voluntary evacuation
    notices to the residents of the Loma Linda Development, which is
    where the fire broke out, Aschenbrenner said.
    The highway leading up to Mount Lemmon has been closed at the
    base of the mountain, Aschenbrenner said.
