VIDEO: Wildfires are continuing to burn throughout Arizona. And with the summer heat just beginning, it seems like it's a problem that could only get bigger. Crews are battling fires big and small across the state. We even had a small brush fire break out overnight. It was spotted near 77th Ave. and Baseline Road around 12:30 a.m. Crews from Phoenix and Tolleson used a combination of fire engines, brush trucks, and tanker trucks to quickly contain the blaze. Only about an acre was burned. There are currently a dozen wildfires burning in Arizona. Most notably - the Woodbury Fire northwest of Superior which has grown to more than 10,000 acres. There are now about 450 firefighters working to contain the flames. Air quality in the area has been a big issue and crews are telling hikers to avoid the area.
