The newest Arizona wildfire, the Poco Fire, has already burned 1,000 acres about six miles northeast of Young, Arizona.
The fire is zero percent contained, but two hot shot crews, a full crew, four engines and two air tankers were already on-scene.
Five additional hot shot crews and the DC-10 VLAT were also en route to the fire.
Keep an eye on the Poco Fire on the Tonto NF. It has the potential to get real big fast.

No homes are an immediate danger, the Forest Service said.
The fire is burning in a steep and rugged area.
The fire was first reported Thursday around 2:30 p.m., meaning the fire is burning just shy of 150 acres per hour.
The cause is under investigation.
