    Arizona Wildfires: Fire and Smoke continue


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     APizm spoke to a few different fire personnel working to battle the raging wildfires that are still continuing in Sunflower, Arizona. Many fire personnel explained that the wildfires are related to the current weather conditions. Currently, Arizona is facing strong winds, which are making the fires far worse, he says. 'If the wind continues to gust and the temperatures continue to rise, then the conditions are not in the fire fighters favor, as hard as we try, we just can't beat mother nature fiery under those conditions,' the forest service agent told APizm.

    Over 30,000 acres are still burning in Arizona. High winds and high temperatures are not helping the nearly 2,000 fire fighters in Arizona take control of the blazes.

    This images were taken at the Sunflower wildfire, south of Payson, Arizona.
