Several structures lost to wind-whipped fire in Old Bisbee
BISBEE, Ariz. — Authorities said four structures have been lost after a wind-whipped fire in Bisbee.
Cochise County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Carol Capas said the fire was no longer spreading and was expected to be brought under control in a few hours.
There were no reported injuries.
Capas said multiple homes were evacuated. Four vacant homes burned down.
The Arizona Daily Star reported three to five vacant homes were destroyed, all in the Terrace Hills area off of Tombstone Canyon.
The fire started around 5 p.m. Monday on Star Avenue in Old Bisbee, about 90 miles southeast of Tucson.
Its cause remained unclear.
Crews from five fire agencies tried to keep the blaze from spreading down a hill and through a grassy area that surrounded homes.
