By Thursday late evening, the Arizona Wallow Fire has covered 487,016 acres in eastern Arizona and western New Mexico, authorities reported. The fire at that point was still only 33 percent contained, and there are fears that the strong winds over the coming days could put that figure at risk.
A spot fire on Thursday to the south of Eagar town in Arizona prompted authorities to issue a “pre-evacuation notice” to 230 homes in the area, which means they should be prepared to leave at any time. Residents of Eagar have been back home for less than a week after returning home just last Sunday following their initial evacuation from the Wallow Fire.
