USA — A wildfire is burning in southern Arizona Sunday night, and it’s big enough that the flames have spread to the other side of the border.

The Pena Fire is burning in the Coronado National Forest in Pena Blanca Canyon, just west of Nogales.

Some 4,000 acres have been charred, and 80 percent of the flames are in Mexico.

There is another fire burning nearby, southwest of Nogales, called the Yank Fire. It has burned about 800 acres, but it is 90 percent contained.
