SUPERIOR (AP) – A human-caused wildfire in east-central Arizona near Superior continues to grow and remains uncontained.

The blaze that’s been burning for a week now in the Tonto National Forest has charred about 57 square miles of grass and brush in rugged terrain as of Sunday morning. The fire has tripled in size since Friday due to hot and dry conditions.

It’s now about 5 miles northwest of Superior. But authorities say there are no threats yet to any communities in the area.
