Long Tailbacks as Arizona’s Walnut Fire Prompts Road Closures


A wildfire burning east of Tucson, Arizona, had grown to almost 7,000 acres by the early hours of June 23, prompting evacuations and road closures locally. Footage shared on Twitter by @_thetalldwarf shows tailbacks on Interstate 10 towards Dragoon, which authorities said was closed on Tuesday due to the Walnut Fire but had reopened later that day. Evacuation orders were in place for areas in Cochise County as of Tuesday evening. Credit: _thetalldwarf via Storyful
