GLOBE, Ariz. (AP) - A lightning-caused wildfire burning in east-central Arizona didn’t grow much overnight and hasn’t caused any evacuations.

The fire is nearly half-contained but expected to keep burning for another three to five days about six miles south of Globe in the Tonto National Forest.

Authorities say the fire has burned about 10 square miles (26 sq. kilometers) since it began on May 8.

Over 600 personnel have worked the fire.

Officials are holding a community meeting Sunday at 5 p.m. at High Desert Middle School in Globe. The meeting will also be live-streamed on Facebook.
