Officials say they are making progress in controlling a wildfire burning in northern Arizona, now covering some 21 square miles. The containment is at just 25%, but the expectation is it will be a while before that figure goes down. The human-caused fire has emptied out a canyon area that would typically draw many holiday weekend visitors, but so far has not claimed any homes, though some mandatory evacuations remain in place.

AM 820 News anchor Robert Pankau spoke to ABC News correspondent Jim Ryan.
