YOUNG, Ariz. (AP) - More than 100 firefighters remain around the perimeter of an eastern Arizona wildfire as they wait for possible scattered thunderstorms.
The U.S. Forest Service said late Monday that containment against the Poco Fire just outside of Young is still at 65 percent.
Crews continue to check for hot spots and are prepositioned for potential lightning strikes.
Andy Mandell, the incident commander trainee, said some trees are smoldering.
The Poco Fire was burned nearly 12,000 acres since it began on June 14.
Five firefighters have been injured and no structures have burned.
