SPRINGERVILLE, Ariz. (AP) - The commander of the team battling a big wildfire in the mountains of eastern Arizona says firefighters have a tough three of four days ahead of them. The weather settled down overnight, but forecasts call for winds to pick up again. The 365-square-mile blaze has been burning uncontained for more than a week. The Colorado Springs Fire Department has sent a wildland crew to help with the fire.
