It was estimated to have burned 11,000 acres as of early Monday afternoon and continued to move east due to high winds, said Arlene Perea, public information officer for the Southwest Area Incident Management Team 3, which assumed responsibility for the fire on Monday morning.
She added that an infrared flight would be conducted over the fire area after midnight Tuesday, which would allow the incident management team to get a better idea of the size of the blaze.
Approximately 800 personnel from all over the Southwest have responded but the fire's containment remained at zero, Perea said.
