Two Apache tribes in Arizona threatened by a growing wildfire

An uncontrolled wildfire has threatened two Apache tribes in Arizona.

The Wallow Fire has crossed into the San Carlos Apache Reservation. It also poses a risk to the White Mountain Apache Tribe.

The fire has burned about 400,000 acres in eastern Arizona. Some towns have been evacuated.

The smoke has drifted to New Mexico, where residents of several reservations in the western side of the state are dealing with poor air quality conditions.
