Schultz Fire Grows to 10,000 Acres

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a 10,000-acre wildfire northeast of Flagstaff, Ariz., that was started by an abandoned campfire has been 10 percent contained.

However, residents of about 750 homes remain under evacuation orders as 800 firefighters continue to battle the so-called Schultz fire that broke out Sunday. No structures have burned in the blaze.

The fire was the second that broke out in two days in the Flagstaff area, both of which spurred evacuations across the forested mountain city.

Some of the residents of the 116 homes evacuated because of the Hardy fire in southeastern Flagstaff have been allowed to return after crews worked to establish a perimeter around that 300-acre blaze.
