Arizona's massive wildfire

A truck departs after a main highway into town was restricted because of the massive Wallow Fire in Springerville, Ariz. So far, 3,500 people have been displaced due to the blaze, but firefighters were able to make some gains against the voracious blaze on Friday.

More than 400,000 acres have burned in eastern Arizona, prompting the evacuations. Here, smoke looms over the twin towns of Eager and Springerville, home to about 7,000 people north of the fire.
