A wildfire, called the Needles Fire, burning on both sides of the Colorado River near Needles, California, and Mohave Valley, Arizona, has neighborhoods under "SET" orders on Saturday night, according to the Mohave County Sheriff's Office. The fire ignited on Saturday as temperatures in the area reached as high as 110 degrees and was originally mapped at 40-50 acres before expanding to more than 200 acres. The San Bernardino County Fire Department in California said the fire has burned 70 acres in California and is 75% contained. In a press release Sunday morning, the Mohave Valley Fire District said the fire had burned just under 200 total acres, but not say exactly how many acres had been burned in Arizona.
