The White Wing fire is the largest fire burning in Arizona currently, located just northwest of Phoenix. Read on for more details about the fire, including photos and maps of its location.
The fire is now about 1,200 acres in size as of Thursday evening, AZ Central shared.
It’s located west of Wittmann and started out at about 60 acres before exploding in size. It’s burning south of State Route 74 and moving north. In the interactive map below, the purple dot indicates the approximate location of the White Wing Fire, provided by NWCG.gov.

The fire grew rapidly today, but higher humidity and lower winds are expected to help decrease fire activity in the coming days.
