DOUGLAS, Ariz. (AP) - Firefighters dealing with gusty winds and dry conditions are battling an Arizona wildfire that has now crossed into New Mexico.

The fire near Douglas is up to 10.6 square miles and is 15 percent contained, but firefighters have an uphill battle thanks to dangerous weather conditions.

Fire spokesman Jon Cambra says the blaze was reported Sunday evening 28 miles northeast of Douglas and crossed into New Mexico on Thursday.

Cambra says it’s threatening a ranch that’s about a mile from the fire but no other structures are threatened.

There also haven’t been any injuries as a result of the fire.

Authorities are investigating how the fire started. There are about 60 fire personnel on hand.
