DOUGLAS, Ariz. (AP) - A wildfire burning in sparsely populated areas of southeastern Arizona and southwestern New Mexico continues to grow but still doesn’t threaten any buildings or other structures.

The fire has been burning grass and brush since starting Monday morning 28 miles northwest of Douglas, Arizona.

Land burned by the fire is mostly west of the Arizona-New Mexico line, but the fire also is burning in New Mexico.

The fire is up to 10.6 square miles as of Friday, and officials estimate there are fire breaks or lines around 15 percent of the fire’s perimeter.

Approximately 65 personnel are assigned to the fire.

Its cause is under investigation.
