A wildfire in Arizona continues to burn out of control Monday.

Firefighters are trying to contain the 500–acre blaze that had threatened a small town north of Phoenix. Authorities now say the town of Crown King doesn't appear in danger as winds have pushed the fire away, though voluntary evacuations had been issued as a precaution.

The blaze began Saturday night when a hiker set a signal fire after becoming lost.
