Wildfire in Timberline contained at 1 acre

About 600 people are still evacuated. Fire officials warned that dry conditions will lead to more blazes in the coming months.

About half of Arizona was in the worst two categories of drought, a stark change from a year ago when only some areas were characterized as abnormally or moderately dry.

The emergency declared Monday in Coconino County frees up $200,000 in state funding.

The 13.5 square-mile (34.9 square kilometers) wildfire started late last week in a remote area about an hour southwest of Winslow.

About 41 homes were destroyed or heavily damaged due to the fire, county officials said Wednesday.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency said Monday it will cover up to 75 percent of eligible firefighting costs.

U.S. Forest Service officials announced Tuesday that an "abandoned illegal campfire" was to blame for the fire. Evacuations have been ordered for residents in small communities.

The Diener Canyon Fire was 9,338 acres and 95 percent contained. An evacuation site was set up at a Navajo casino resort, after being moved from a junior high school because of smoke. A spokesman for the American Red Cross says seven people stayed there overnight.

But officials assured that "zero percent containment does not equal zero percent progress". The cause of the fire is unknown, CNN affiliate KNXV-TV reports. Approximately 20-30 structures have burned.

That road is State Route 87, which has been closed for days.

Around 500 firefighters and 7 hotshot crews of elite wildland firefighters are battling the blaze that is 0 percent contained.
