Wildfire in Arizona

A wildfire believed to have been sparked by inattentive campers continues to burn, largely out of control, for its 12th day in eastern Arizona. The Wallow Fire now ranks as the state's second largest wildfire on record -- it has already left 600 square miles of pine forest blackened near the New Mexico border and driven thousands of residents from their homes.

These images show some of the scenes taking place around eastern Arizona as residents and firefighters cope with the disaster.
