A wildfire in the southwestern state of Arizona has forced nearly 1000 people from their homes. The fire has been burning for the past six days and officials say its getting worse. (SOUNDBITE) (English) ARIZONA GOVERNOR JAN BREWER SAYING: "We just arrived by plane and flew over the fire, which is a frightening sight, I might say. It appeared from the air that it's moving somewhat rapidly. Of course, we can see, obviously, all the smoke that it's created. It's a terrible thing to see happen." Smoke and ash drifting eastward from fires in Arizona and New Mexico prompted health officials to issue warnings for residents to stay indoors in some regions. This is the fourth largest wild fire in Arizona's history. Julie Noce, Reuters
