Wildfire Near Picacho (Lead Story)

More than 800-acres have burned so far in the Picacho Peak reservoir.

Fire officials say they'll let it continue burning over the next few days. That's because it's cheaper to let it burn in a controlled environment than it is to fight it. The fire started Saturday night and is expected to burn up to 1500 acres.

No homes are threatened. But, fire fighters are keeping a close eye on the surrounding areas.
